Ecstasy (MDMA) Offenses and Penalties in NYC

Queens Drug Crime Defense Attorney

The drug ecstasy has been placed on the federal government's list as a schedule I substance for very good reason. In addition to causing extreme highs, it also causes hallucinations, depression, paranoia and severe, anxiety and for some users, permanent brain damage or death. It is passed around under many names such as "Adam", "XTC" and "X" and has a host of troubling side effects.

It is easily made out of inexpensive ingredients, which makes it very profitable to sell. Innocently called a club drug because of its popularity in clubs, it is especially dangerous to consumers who also share it with friends (a crime of distribution) and those who manufacture, or sell it as the legal penalties are severe.

Penalties for Crimes Involving Ecstasy

Known as MDMA (methylene dioxy meth amphetamine), ecstasy has no medicinal use to offset its dangers. It is highly toxic. For this reason, federal penalties in connection with this substance are especially harsh. As with other controlled substances, the severity of the penalties increases with higher amounts of the drug. Mere possession of 25 mgs can mean a felony charge with jail time.

The penalty for possession of 5 grams or more could mean 5 to 40 years in prison. Manufacturing or distributing larger amounts can result in 10 years to life in prison. No matter how serious the charges are which you are facing, a Queens drug crime defense lawyer at our firm can help you fight the charges.
