The sad fact is that most people in Ellisville MO plead guilty to the charge of marijuana possession without first pursuing their other options. They do this because they are unaware of their ability to do anything else. But simply pleading guilty is not the only thing you can do (in fact, it is often the worst thing you can do).Pleading Guilty to the Charge Is Not Your Best Option!!
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 deleterious effects that such a conviction can have on you future prospects for a decent job (and sometimes your ability to rent an apartment).$450 To Take Care of Most Misdemeanor Marijuana Charges
