A 10-year-old boy went into critical condition at Jersey City Medical Center this morning after being hit by a bus on one of Hudson County’s busiest roads. The child was struck at the intersection of Kennedy Boulevard and Neptune Avenue shortly after 8 a.m., although specifics of the crash are not yet known. The boy was taken with his mother at the time of the accident, and was taken to JCMC this morning in extremely critical condition, hospital spokesman Mark Rabson said. Jersey City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill says it’s still unclear whether his mother sustained any injuries
Drug paraphernalia is a broad term and refers to many materials and devices associated with illegal drugs. As defined under 2C:36-1, “drug paraphernalia means all equipment, products and materials of any kind which are used or intended for use in planting, propagating, cultivating… or otherwise introducing into the human body a controlled dangerous substance or controlled substance analog in violation of the provisions of chapter 35 of this title.”
This paraphernalia includes “kits used or intended for use in manufacturing, isomerization devices used or intended for use in increasing the potency of any species of plant which is a controlled dangerous substance, and testing equipment used or intended for use identifying, or in analyzing the strength, effectiveness or purity of controlled dangerous substances or controlled substance analogs.”
Those found guilty of possessing drug paraphernalia will have to appear in open court and tell the judge what they did to make them guilty of this offense. Those on probation will have to submit to random drug and urine testing. Those who are public office holders or employees will be required to forfeit their offices or jobs by virtue of their guilty plea.
