Additional Penalties for Distribution of Marijuana for Students in College:
Any Marijuana charge in the State of NJ could lead to your ineligibility for federal student loans.   If a student is convicted of the possession of
illegal drugs, he or she loses eligibility for federal aid for one year for the first offense, two years for the second offense and indefinitely for the
third. Selling or conspiring to sell illegal drugs has a slightly shorter leash: After conviction for a first offense, students lose aid eligibility for two
years and then lose eligibility indefinitely after their second offense. The ineligible period starts from the date of conviction, rather than the date of
the offense.  The loss of your student loan money can be significant for most students and families, and thus another reason you must not give up
and fight your charge.  Remember if you did it, that does not mean the state can prove you guilty.  Defenses to a marijuana charge exist but
without hiring a skilled lawyer you will not have the advantage of them.  Being Not Guilty is a legal term not a factual term.  If you want to be not
guilty you fight starts with hiring the best marijuana defense lawyer.  Call Now to setup your free in office consultation to learn how we can help
