It is an unfortunate fact that most people plead guilty to marijuana charges in Cool Valley MO. These folks most likely choose this path because they believe that it is easiest way to handle the situation. But nothing could be further from the truth.
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.
This is to say nothing of the negative impact such a blemish on your permanent record can have for you future. For example, a drug charge and conviction can lead to fewer job prospects, a smaller chance of getting an apartment, and an inability to obtain certain licenses. So it is clear that the far better option is to seek the legal advice of a seasoned St. Louis criminal defense attorney. Such an attorney can either get the charges dropped (especially if the officer’s search was illegally conducted), or get the charges reduced to a lesser infraction (like “littering”).$450 To Take Care of Most Misdemeanor Marijuana Charges
