Possession of Marijuana
Posted by: LEe ()
Date: July 14, 2009 02:07AM

So I turned without a turn signal, got pulled over, and had a piece with some ash in it. I'm charged with possession. It's my first offense. What can I expect?

seriously, never take their word for it, they may act like they're your friend, but they dont have your best interest at heart. Get a lawyer, one specializing in drug possession cases. unless you are under the age of 18, which means it would probably be expunged.

A first offence for MJ possession is usually not prosecuted. The judge will most likely issue a continuance for 6 months, suspend your license and tell you that if you haven't been arrested again before the new court date, you will be free to go.

They usually don't fuck with first time offenders of simple possesion.

If you really feel like spending the money, or are not sure about the outcome, hire a lawyer.

If you can afford it, hire the lawyer. He might actually be able to have the charges thrown out or maybe prevent you from having your license suspended.

All things considered, just show up, take the standard 90 days suspension and 6 month court date (that you don't even have to show up for if nothing else has happened) and be happy.


In the future, stop smoking weed outside of your home, and definitely do not drive around town with weed or a pipe.

If you absolutely cannot resist the urge to smoke outside your home, take a sheet of tinfoil, roll it around a pencil, and bend up a quarter inch at the end. You just made a bowl you can crumple up and throw away anytime you see blue lights.

But just stop smoking outside your home. When you stay home and smoke, the cops really don't give a shit. Out of sight, out of mind. Do whatever you want at home, but keep it at home.

A lawyer might get the charges dropped outright, but you are going to pay dearly.

As far as I know, a first time simple possession is usually treated lightly. The judge is going to suspend your license for 6 months (and you can petition for a restricted license), and after 6 months of no other charges, you don't have anything to worry about.

If you plan to run for office some day, having the charges dismissed instead of them going to court without being prosecuted might make a difference. I don't know. As far as I know, even going to court and having the judge withhold prosecution pending further violations is really the same thing. You never get convicted, so it only shows up as an arrest, and nothing more.

We're not talking about expunging a conviction. A first offense simple possession charge is usually never brought to conviction. The judge is basically withholding judgement for 6 months and if you don't get into trouble in those 6 months, he isn't going to convict you, he's going to dismiss the charges.

So, it basically means that as long as you keep yourself out of trouble for 6 months, the only thing you have on your record is an arrest record, not an actual conviction or criminal record.

Being arrested for something and being convicted of it are two different things. You can probably still get a security clearance, or run for office, and you can definitely not worry about it affecting normal job applications.

I really hope you're right man. Is it possible to have an arrest record expunged? I don't even know if you could say I was arrested. They just put cuffs on me and made me sit on the side of the road for 30 minutes then let me drive off. Also, this occurred in Loudon county

I'm pretty sure arrest records are never expunged.

If you had cuffs on you, you were arrested. If you were given a summons, you were arrested.

Don't worry about that part of it all. Worry about how much you had, or if the paraphernalia will test positive for THC.

But, if all you had on you was a small "personal use" amount, or just a bowl with residue, you should be able to get a probation before conviction and have it thrown out after 6 months.

Of course, my experience is with Fairfax County courts, I don't know that much about Loudon.

Perhaps you should ask Inkahootz about Loudon. I hear he has all kinds of experience with all of the courts in the area, especially Arlington, but I'm sure Loudon, as well. He's a bad-ass dude, after all. But unfortunately he says he isn't posting here anymore, even if the same person is still making lame comments and stalking regulars like a little bitch.

All they can do is send it to the lab and find traces of THC on it. That is simple possession, no quantity or anything like "intent to distribute" or anything.

Small quantities are not a big deal. Traces in a bowl are the most benign.

You certainly won't see any jail time, and most likely will just lose your license for a little while, and never be convicted of anything.

If you are really worried, consult with a lawyer. They don't charge you for consultation, they only charge you if they represent you in court. Any honest lawyer will probably tell you his services are not necessary.

I knew guys who've actually plead down bags with less than a half z in it to paraphenelia and kept their licenses, I knew one guy I worked with who did it with a public defender. 3-4 years ago but a pretty generous deal when you consider the alternative.

If you're really bugged about the drug tests and meetings you can always have your mouthpiece tell the prosecutor that you'd take a plea to a night or two in jail because you're moving out of state ( or just are someone who probably wont mix with tests/meetings/supervision well) and would rather just get everything over with. If given the choice between hours of meetings and months of piss tests, a few nights in jail and done is actually a pretty good trade.

where is all this expungement stuff coming from? In the technical sense that's not on the table here. A dismissal or a finding of not guilty is the best you can do.

BTW I say get a lawyer and fight it, the cops often present weak cases at these trials. Fuck probation.

You got off lucky. I got caught with the exact same thing in MD and they took me to jail for the night and seized my car. This was years ago though. Don't know if it's changed up there now. I got a lawyer though and he got it thrown out on a technicality. An expensive lesson learned.

As far as I know, which admittedly isn't much, "expungement" only occurs for minors under the age of 18.

I wouldn't, however, rely on advice from some "tapout" wastoid. FFS.

No if you're not convicted you can get it expunged from the court records, but the arrest remains. Maybe that's different for minors?

Convictions are not expunged unless you go through the legal process to have them expunged. just because you turn 18 does not make it go away. the arrest, and then the subsequent conviction, will be reported to the FBI through NCIC, and there will always be a record of it. THe juvenile court may purge the records after 10 years, but since the FBI will still have it, it never really goes away.

You dont need a lawyer, ignore these fuckheads. First time possession and you will simply get a 6 month suspended sentence after which it will be expunged from your record. That means no one will see it except the pigs and it might come up during a top security background check but whether your convicted or not they will know you were arrested for it anyways.

So right after I turned 18 I got a possession of Marijuana charge. I got a lawyer who is a family friend to represent me but he said it was pointless to fight because the labs would find it to be THC and would charge me anyways. So I got a possession charge. I lost my licence for 6 months and had to go to drug and alcohol information classes. Which was 6 weeks long. I was drug tested once at the intake interview, once in the middle and once at the end. Which for 6 weeks you can be clean... or test your luck and just get a detox drink. I didnt have any community service and my lawyer said that it will be on the record as a charge but not a conviction. Hope this helps.

At least consult a Loudon county lawyer. The first consult is usually free. You may need help getting permission to do your drug education classes out of state. People have lost jobs/school/money and time,etc because of VASAP bullshit. Their classes and counseling are a joke all totally designed to rake in your money. Frankly, I would rather pay a bigger fine than have ever go there. And guard your urine sample closely during testing - I have personal knowledge of pee theft.

The only way you will have a conviction vs. a dismissal on your record is if you screw up or VASAP screws you. After 3 years, you can apply to have it expunged.

If Obama, Clinton, and a reluctant Bush II have known drug pasts, this should not slow you down. Actually the FBI and other agencies really only freak over past hard drug use that is hard to kick such as cocaine/crack/meth. So it should not affect a security clearance in the future.

The best/easiest solution to your problem is to just work with the cops one time, easiest thing is to set up your least favorite drug dealer. you wont have the charge on your record, they will noel process you at court and you won't have to deal with probation. anyways some people are too scared to do this and not everything is suited for everyone. anyways good luck in court man!

Rarely are lawyers necessary for so minor an infraction. Did they even search you legally? It might not even go anywhere.

You have nothing to worry about. Since you are obviously severely mentally retarded, you are unfit for trial. Congratulations.

I'm 16 years old. I was caught two days ago with 2 resinous pipes and not even half a bowl of shake. It was probably .1 grams of weed in total. Neither of the mentioned things were on me, I had hid them and the cops found them. I'm pretty sure someone saw me hide this stuff and narked on me. What can I expect to happen? Will I be prosecuted or what? Was it enough weed for anything to happen?

i think it's a misdemeanor and there is a fine...I was a passenger, and drunk off of my gourd, but the driver and other passengers were all high. Pretty funny. I said I was shitfaced and didn't get charged with anything.

Nothing against getting high, just wasn't my thing at that time.

i was arrested in may of 2011 (no cuffs, just read my rights and given a ticket for an august court date) for the same thing. the judge gave me a continuance until october of 2011 and i was charged with misdemeanor possession and given a $100 court fine and a 6-month suspended license.

imo you COULD get a lawyer but if you were charged with possession of paraphernalia there's really not much you can do. i would just go in and plead guilty. they'll try to offer you the 251 disposition because this is your first offense but the whole thing is a joke... license suspended for a year + asap classes + community service and on top of all that you end up paying upwards of $1000 for everything. you'll most likely get slapped with a $100-200 fine plus court fees and have your license suspended for 6 months.

i know it's shitty but it's over before you know it. i hope it goes well!

Oh man, you are SO screwed. Buh-bye school, hellooo federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison!



Seriously though, it's a first offense, you're not going to jail. You're gonna be kicked out of your school, but legally nothing is gonna happen to you except for maybe, worst case scenario, communtiy service plus a small fine.

Oh, unless you're black, then you're going to jail.

It doesn't matter what strain/grade of marijuana it is, as long as it has THC in it, it's a crime.

I will repeat the above poster's link as it is correct:

http://norml.org/laws/item/virginia-penalties-2?category_id=892

To the people with simple possession- it will be the 641 charge- community service, license suspended 6 months, if you were in college you won't be now! No more student aid for you! You will bounce back, but it will be difficult.

To the person who was on school grounds in MD (http://norml.org/laws/item/maryland-penalties-2?category_id=864)

- you're fucked even harder. Within 1000 yards of school property is a MANDATORY 2-5 year FELONY JAIL SENTENCE


To anyone caught with drugs- good luck finding a job or an apartment with a fresh drug charge! A LOT of the places out here will NOT take people with drug charges- not to mention the employment market is so tight, of course they will take the kid with no record vs. the kid with a fresh drug charge on his.

Good luck with that, those that have been caught!

It is when you can't even write a simple sentence. If I were you, I would be worried more about your ability to form a complete thought than whether dank has a harsher penalty than reggie.

Your English comprehension in reading is seriously lacking as well because flight risk explained everything to you in the preceding post. Marijuana is marijuana in the eyes of the police, it doesn't matter what strain. If anything, what matters is where you are caught with it (near a school, for instance) or what quantity (possession vs. dealing).

My advice: stop smoking weed and make something of your life. You obviously already pissed away your opportunity at getting a free education from public school, now you should spend what little money you have to learn something useful so you aren't either sponging off the government or living in prison.

I usually can agree with Ito, while he gives good advice most of the time, sometimes he doesn't give feasible advice.


Josh- you're already on a path tread often and by many. Stick with it man. Do drugs, get on welfare as soon as you can. Work at McDonalds or a gas station. Or go to jail and spend your life there.

I think my suggestion is more suited to you, Josh.

I'd say good luck, but it's not hard to do. I believe in you.

Okay , so I gave marijuana away at school to my friend. The school made me do 40 hours of community service which is already completed. But I wasn't caught with any weed on me and they're taking me to court for possession of marijuana by a minor. What will happen?

sounds like your friend ratted you out. snitches get stitches. fyi, doesnt matter if you have it on you or not. knowledge of someone having it, makes you just as guilty. for example. you are in a vehicle that is pulled over. cops get weed off someone in the vehicle or find it in the car. if you knew about it, you can be charged. good luck in court. your screwed, and going to juvy jail.

For the OP, many lawyers offer free initial consultations. At least talk to a lawyer before you decide whether or not to hire one. A lawyer might find grounds to throw out the search or even the initial stop (you didn't even get a ticket for that, right?), or get the penalty reduced. Even if the standard penalty is only a six-month license suspension, that could be a big dent in your daily life, and if you screw up even one time you might end up with a criminal record that you will have to explain forever.

Hey man, weed does not kill brain cells :] If you're a Virginia fella and you got to go through DARE like most of us Virginians, you'll be interested to hear that the program is actually no longer federally funded, because it had been teaching and preaching information about marijuana that wasn't accurate. Virginia officials chose to continuing funding DARE with state taxpayer money, despite the debunking of the studies that DARE had been relying upon to wage their war... Propaganda, man. The biggest lie of all is that smoking marijuana kills brain cells. They will preach that all day in DARE. But really, the study that said that was conducted fundamentally incorrectly...

When they tested poor little rabbits and things for this experiment, they pumped a chamber completely full of smoke and allowed their test subjects to breathe only *that* for a certain amount of time. So, when they finished the experiment and saw that there were dead brain cells, it was not as a result of smoking weed. It was as a result of oxygen deprivation. This is the bass-ackwards scientific study that our state chooses to believe in order to scare the kids sober.

I'm sure most of you Virginia Tokers on this forum will agree with me when I say that we live in one of the most beautiful places in the country, but we get to pay for it in conservative policies like this. There's an irony in the fact that weed was a huge part of my spiritual development growing up, but so were my Blue Ridge Mountains... If I wanted to smoke ganja legally, I'd have to leave my beautiful Virginia for a while, but she's one of the two lovers that will always call me back for the rest of my life: Mary J and Virginia... ;D

Whew. Somebody make that a bluegrass song. Anyway, that little tangent aside, I would hazard a guess that this fella would have been lacking in literacy whether he met Mary or not ;]
