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.
If this is something you would rather avoid, then the best thing to do is contact a good attorney. At The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, we would seek one of two remedies: 1) get the charges dropped; or 2) get the charge reduced to something minor (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your record).
