Q) Is possession of cocaine a felony offense?

A) In New Jersey, criminal offenses are categorized as indictable crimes (known in other states as felonies) or disorderly persons offenses (known in other states as misdemeanors).  Penalties for possession of cocaine vary based on the weight of the drugs in possession, the location where the possession took place and whether the possession was with the intent to distribute.  Additionally, if you are charged with possession of cocaine in a school zone, public housing project or public park, there are enhanced penalties.
