Conspiracy to Possess CDS Offences: Elements That Must Be Proven Beyond Reasonable Doubt

New Jersey’s Conspiracy Law for possession of drugs or controlled dangerous substances (CDS) requires prosecutors to prove four elements beyond reasonable doubt:

1. Object or purpose to possess CDS.
2. Agreement with at least one other person.
3. Agreement was to acquire or aid in the acquisition of CDS/drugs.
4. Engaged in an overt act or substantial step in pursuance of the conspiracy.

Proofs established on each point lead to a guilt verdict for conspiracy to possess drugs.

Penalties for Conspiracy and Possession of Controlled Dangerous Substances:
In general terms, conspiracy carries the same crime grade or degree as the underlying charge.

A third-degree crime would be considered if conspiring to obtain Schedule I, II, III or IV drugs, such as:

– Cocaine
– Heroin
– Methamphetamine
– LSD
– MDMA (e.g. “molly” or “ecstasy”)
– GHB
– Bath Salts
– Mushrooms or Mescaline/Peyote
– Hydromorphone/Hydrocodone
– Methadone
– Oxycodone (OxyContin/RoxyContin)
– Fentanyl
– Buprenorphine (Suboxone)
– Ketamine
anabolic steroids

In the case of possession of more than 50 grams of marijuana or 5 grams of hashish, or a Schedule V drug, conspiracy would result in a fourth-degree crime and up to 18 months in prison.

Comprehensive Drug Reform Act: No Mandatory Penalties Apply.

The Appellate Division decision of In the Interests of W.M., 237 N.J.Super.111 (App.Div.1989) provides that mandatory penalties that apply for CDS possession will not apply if a conviction involves conspiracy charges for:
– 6-24 driver’s license suspension; and
– DEDR penalty ($1,000 for a third-degree crime and $750 for a fourth-degree crime).
