Many individuals — teenagers and adults alike — have come to view marijuana possession as a minor offense. The laws governing marijuana do not carry the same weight as other, more dangerous drugs. However, simply being in possession of marijuana can carry stringent consequences, including jail time and a monetary fine. A conviction for marijuana possession is a class 1 misdemeanor and can affect your license to drive as well as your future job prospects.
