Marijuana Crime Penalties
Penalties vary for different drug crimes:
- Marijuana possession
- Distribution of marijuana
- Trafficking of marijuana
- Other marijuana-related crimes
Possessing a small amount of marijuana for personal use, for example, is a less serious crime than marijuana trafficking. Marijuana possession can result in fines and possible jail time. Trafficking or distribution can constitute federal charges and result in significant prison time.
A conviction on marijuana charges can have a huge impact on the life of a young person. When you are just beginning to build your life, a drug conviction can derail your ability to secure an education or obtain a license to pursue a career, and it can act as a black mark to potential employers.
No matter the circumstances of the charges you are facing, it is imperative that you secure the representation of a skilled and experienced attorney who understands how to help you secure the best possible resolution to your drug crime defense case.
