Selling, buying, using and growing marijuana are all illegal activities. If you are convicted of a marijuana charge, you can be sentenced to jail time and a large fine. You can also be suspended from driving, even if your arrest was not in a vehicle. The severity of the sentence depends on a number of factors.
Quantity is one element that is considered during sentencing. The more marijuana you have in your possession when arrested, the harsher the punishment.
Selling marijuana or marijuana possession with intent to distribute or growing marijuana can also lead to a more severe penalty. The location of where you’re accused of marijuana is also an important consideration. A conviction for sale of drugs near a school will garner more serious punishment.
If you have had one or more prior marijuana convictions, you may spend more time in jail or pay even larger fines.
