Help to Fight the Possible Penalties for a Drug Crime Conviction
In the Commonwealth, penalties for being convicted of a drug offense can range from:
- Months to decades in prison
- $1,000 to $500,000 fines
- Potential driver's license suspension
The types of penalties you face depend not only on the class of controlled substance involved, but also on the amount of the drug involved. For instance, if you're accused of possession of more than 14 grams of (most) controlled substances, that charge could automatically become a drug trafficking or distribution charge. The penalties for drug sale charges grow in severity if you've been charged with sale to minors or sale on or near school campuses.
We can help you fight possession, sale, and trafficking charges for any class of drug, including:
- Class A drugs, such as fentanyl, heroin, ketamine, and morphine
- Class B drugs, such as cocaine, ecstasy, hydrochloride, LSD, meth, and oxycodone
- Class C drugs, such as hallucinogens
- Class D controlled substances, such as barbiturates, inhalants, and marijuana

Frequently Asked Questions
Can Your License Be Suspended For a Drug Offense in Massachusetts?
The short answer is yes, your driver's license can be suspended for a drug crime, particularly in cases related to operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs (OUI). According to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 90 Section 24, the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) will suspend or revoke your learner's permit, driver's license, or right to operate a vehicle once an OUI conviction has been determined.
Should you be charged with OUI in a different state, the same rules apply; the RMV will revoke your Massachusetts permit or license just as if the offense had occurred in MA.
What Is the Statute of Limitations on Drugs in Massachusetts?
In Massachusetts, the statute of limitations on drugs is six years from the date of offense. While each state has its own, the federal statute of limitations is 60 months, or five years.
Our law offices can be found in Southborough, Mansfield, Burlington, Danvers, and Dedham, and we represent clients across Beverly, Cambridge, Plymouth, Quincy, Woburn, Worcester, and the rest of the state.
