Marijuana Possession Charges in Foristell MO - for as little as $450
Have you been charged with possession of marijuana in Foristell MO? Do you fully understand the consequences that can come your way if the charge is not handled correctly? Are you aware of what will happen to you if a plea of guilty is entered on your case?
Most people are unsure about the answers to these questions. And unfortunately, that will normally lead to folks pleading guilty to the charge. But this is not your best option!!Pleading Guilty 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.
But that’s not even the worst part!! If you plead guilty, this charge will become a part of your permanent record as a drug conviction. That means any time someone runs a background check on you, it will show up. This will make things difficult for you when renting an apartment, applying for a job, taking out a student loan, or trying for government benefits.
