- From marijuana possession to drug importation, Mr. John D'Intino handles all cases involving drugs. Drug cases customarily fall into three categories:
- Drug possession for personal use.
- Under the influence of a drug.
- Possession of drugs for sale, transportation or manufacturing.
These cases can be the result of jail time and fines to far more long-term consequences. A drug crime conviction on your record can lead to difficulty obtaining employment, a professional license, a government student loan and can even prohibit you from renting an apartment or house. These charges are taken seriously as it can ruin your personal life and your finances.
