 Wake Forest Marijuana Possession Lawyer

Although Marijuana possession is a common, low level crime, there is still a wide range of possible punishments. While some charges lead to jail time, generally the result is probation or a fine. Regardless of the seriousness of the crime, make sure you speak with an experienced Garner Marijuana Lawyer before any form of law enforcement. 

Misdemeanor vs. Felony

A marijuana charge can be either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances of the crime. The quantity of the substance, the presence of paraphernalia, and the intended use of those drugs all are going to play a factor in the significance of the charge. Here are the basic provisions of marijuana law in NC.  

- Less than 0.5 oz = Misdemeanor = $200 fine

- 0.5 oz - 1.5 oz = Misdemeanor = $1000 fine + 1-45 days in jail

- 1.5 oz - 10 oz = Felony = $1000 fine + 3-8 months in jail 

Marijuana Possession Reputation Issues

For many the big issue with marijuana possession charges is reputation based.  Even if the case is dismissed a record of the charge still remains visible for prospective employers.  For many it’s just a bad questions that you don’t want to answer during a job interview. We handle marijuana possession cases with the goal of a dismissal and then an expungement to remove all public records for our clients.  Don’t let a minor marijauna charge get between you and your dream job.
