Drug Possession In New Hampshire
You can be charged with possession for purchasing, transporting, possessing, or having a controlled substance. If you are found with a controlled substance, you may be charged with drug possession resulting in a misdemeanor or Class B felony charge for the first offense and a felony for the second offense. Under New Hampshire law, your charge depends on the type of drug classified under different schedules, the amount, and the intent of the person in possession of a controlled drug.

Trafficking controlled substances is a more serious offense. An individual may face this charge when believed to be selling, manufacturing, or distributing Schedule I, II, III, IV, and V substances. These include cocaine, LSD, PCP, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, hashish, flunitrazepam and other drugs listed in Schedules I through V.
