Defending Against Marijuana Possession Charges
The possible penalties for drug possession convictions carry the potential to affect almost every aspect of your life. So, while marijuana possession charges are less serious than other drug possession charges, you need to take immediate action to protect yourself from the possible consequences of a conviction if you find yourself charged with possession of even a small amount of this drug.
Possible Penalties for Marijuana Possession
The severity of marijuana possession charges will depend upon the amount of the substance that police allege you had in your possession. As such, possession charges in our state may be pursued as either a misdemeanor charge—involving possession for personal use—or a felony charge—involving the possession with the intent to sell. As indicated by the following penalties, the possible consequences of a conviction have the potential to affect every aspect of your life:
- Prison time (there is a mandatory minimum for felony convictions)
- Substantial fines from the court
- Possible designation as a felon
