There are thousands of people charged with possession of marijuana each and every year. It is a very common citation that police write up. But just because this type of charge is common, it does not mean that you shouldn’t take it seriously.
As of January 1, 2017, the following laws regarding marijuana possession went into effect:
- If you are caught with less 10 grams of marijuana, it is a Class D Misdemeanor (unless you’ve already been convicted on a prior possession charge, in which case it would be a Class A Misdemeanor).
- If you are caught with between 10 – 35 grams, it is a Class A Misdemeanor.
- If you are caught with between 35 grams – 30 kilograms, it is a Class C Felony.
But a lot of marijuana charges are reduced to something minor (like “littering”) if you hire an experienced attorney to work a plea bargain with the local prosecutor. This is far better than simply pleading guilty to the charges as filed. Because if you plead guilty, you are greatly impacting your ability to get a job in the future (as well as student loans, or entry into college). And in some circumstances, the entire charge can be dropped. This typically happens when the illegal drugs are found by way of an unlawful search and seizure by the police.$450 To Take Care of Most Misdemeanor Marijuana Charges
