If you choose to simply plead guilty to the charge of marijuana possession in Country Club Hills MO, you are in good company. That is because unfortunately, almost all people go that route.

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.
And then of course there are the consequences that you do not see right away. Those negative effects come later when, because you have such a blemish on your record, you cannot get a decent job. Or a commercial driver’s license. Or even get into an apartment (because you application is denied).
But our law firm does one of two things: 1) get the charges dropped; or 2) get the charges reduced (down to some lesser offense, like “littering”). And this is far better than trying to maneuver through the system by yourself.
