St. Louis Marijuana Criminal Defense - for as little as $450
Getting caught with an illegal substance like marijuana in the state of Missouri is a big deal. Missouri has some of the strictest drug possession laws in the entire country. While this may seem harsh (especially if you are a first time offender), there are plenty of things that can be done about it. And this is exactly why it is so important to speak with an experienced marijuana possession attorney in St. Louis before you do anything.
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.
It is a sad fact to point out, but the vast majority of people who are charged with possession of marijuana do nothing more than plead guilty. People do this because they believe there is no other alternative available to them. But the exact opposite is true!! Everyone in this country has the right to put on a defense against the charges leveled against them (for instance, there are a good number of facts that can and should be pointed out to the court when someone is caught with an illegal drug). And at the very least, there is always the chance of working out a plea bargain with the local prosecutor to get the charges reduced to a lesser offense (so that nothing damaging goes onto your permanent record). But the only way you can truly receive the benefits of these options is through the aid of a good, hardworking St. Louis criminal defense attorney!$450 To Take Care of Most St Louis MO Marijuana Misdemeanor Charges
