Marijuana Charges: Still Severe
Charged with a marijuana crime?
Drug crimes are considered by law enforcement agencies to be extremely serious. Even though marijuana is popularly considered to be not "as bad" as other drugs, you can still suffer very severe penalties if you are convicted of a marijuana-related drug offense. Marijuana penalties can vary depending upon the amount of the drug that you allegedly possess or possessed. For example, if you are found with 10 pounds or less of marijuana, you will almost certainly face jail time if you are convicted. If the amount is 50 pounds or less, you are looking at 3 years.
It is important to remember that punishments are enhanced if you have a prior conviction on your record, especially if it is a drug-related conviction. If you have a prior marijuana conviction, your jail sentence could be extended by a whole year, depending upon the circumstances of your case.
