Marijuana Possession Charges in Ferguson, MO - for as little as $450
Are you currently dealing with a charge for possession of marijuana in Ferguson, MO (or anywhere in the greater St. Louis area)? Does that charge involve more or less than 35 grams of marijuana? When the drugs were found, did the police conduct a legal search? Would you know if the officer had performed an illegal search of your person or belongings? Are you now thinking about pleading guilty? Are you aware of the long term consequences of such a decision? Did you know that an experienced attorney can help guide you through the process from start to finish?
WE WANT TO GET THE MARIJUANA CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
Unfortunately, most people in Ferguson MO simply plead guilty when they are charged with possession of marijuana. They make this decision because they are unaware of any other available options. But there is a better way of dealing with this situation than just pleading guilty.
PLEADING GUILTY TO THE CHARGE IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
As of January 1, 2017, the following laws regarding marijuana possession went into effect:
1. 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)
2. If you are caught with between 10 – 35 grams, it is a Class A Misdemeanor
3. If you are caught with between 35 grams – 30 kilograms, it is a Class C Felony
And that does not even cover the long term effects that such a conviction on your record can have. For instance, there are many jobs that you would not be able to even apply for; there are certain licenses you would not be allowed to have; and you there are certain rental properties that you would not be able get into. All because of a possession conviction on your record.

So what is the alternative?
