Penalties for Drugs Found in Cars

New Brunswick Drug Possession Lawyers

When a drug such as marijuana is found in a car during a traffic stop, the next step is typically a summons for possession in a motor vehicle. However some cases result in a confiscated vehicle. If drugs were found in your car, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney who can help you protect your personal and property rights.
