The potential charges for the possession of marijuana in the state of Missouri (St. Louis included) are as follows:
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.
If neither of these two outcomes seems appealing to you, then you should definitely contact an attorney!! Why? To begin with, a good attorney can get the charge reduced to something small (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your permanent record). And in some cases, the attorney can get the charges thrown out altogether (this is especially the case when for instance the police officer who conducted a search to find the drugs violated your rights).$450 To Take Care of Most Misdemeanor Marijuana Charges
And it should be pointed out that if you allow a drug charge to enter onto your record (by pleading guilty) then you are going to have a difficult time getting a decent job in the future. This is because most employers do a background check on their potential employees as a way to screen people out.
