Mushroom Charges Overview
While psilocybin mushrooms are not typically found in New Jersey, they are frequently involved in drug arrests across the state. If caught with these types of mushrooms or charged with distribution, there are several penalties that one could face under the Controlled Dangerous Substance Act. The following headings provide information about different mushroom offenses and penalties associated with them:
Possession of Mushrooms
Third-degree crimes in New Jerseyresult from possessing psilocybin mushrooms, which are categorized as Schedule I drugs under the Controlled Dangerous Substance Act. Judges can sentence an individual convicted of this crime for up to five years imprisonment and impose a fine of $35,000.
Possession with Intent to Distribute Mushrooms
A court may decide either a second or third-degree crime based on how much drug was being held by someone when found guilty of distributing drugs like psilocybin mushrooms. Ownership or possession of an amount greater than one ounce is subject to a second-degree offense; less than one ounce is punishable by a third-degree crime. A second-degree conviction could result in up to ten years imprisonment and fines up to $150,000 while a third-degree carries five years jail time and fines up to $75,000.
Possession or Distribution of Psilocybin Mushroomsin School Zones
When someone distributes or possesses psychedelic mushrooms close by school facilities (an area within 1k ft), they face additional community service hours restriction (of at least 100 hours). When distribution occurs within such distance from a school facility, an additional breach is unavoidable under N.J.S.A. 2C:35-7, and the guilty individual is subjected to mandatory imprisonment.
Distribution of Mushrooms in Public Park or Housing Project Area
An individual can be separately charged with a second-degree crime when found guilty of possession with intent to distribute psychedelic mushrooms within 500 feet of public parks or housing projects as per N.J.S.A. 2C:35-7.1.
