Therefore, regardless of the amount of drug in question, heroin, cocaine, molly, LSD, mushrooms, crystal meth, crack cocaine and fentanyl will always be a felony offense. What degree of a felony one faces will depend almost entirely on the quantity of the drug that was seized and the location of the seizure (ie drug or school zone).  It is imperative that you contact a Mercer County criminal defense attorney to begin building a case around your particular needs immediately.  Now here is a list of just some of the drug offenses that our firm handles.
