New Mexico Drug Laws

Drug laws in New Mexico divide controlled substances into five schedules. The most dangerous drugs, those considered to be highly addictive and without medical value, are considered Schedule V drugs. As the seriousness of the drugs decrease, so too do the Schedules and penalties.

If you or a loved one was accused of violating a New Mexico or federal drug law, I will provide the aggressive advocacy you need from a skilled ABQ criminal defense attorney. Please contact me if you are interested in defeating drug charges including marijuana, crack, cocaine, ecstasy, heroin and meth possession.
