Possession of Marijuana

Have you been charged with possession of marijuana?

Our Washington possession of marijuana attorneys can help.

Why is a possession of marijuana charge serious?

Many people may not take a possession of marijuana charge very seriously, and expect to receive only minor consequences even if convicted. Unfortunately, this is not the case, and having any sort of criminal record can have a negative effect on your future.

If you are under 21 and convicted of marijuana possession, you could lose your driver’s license for up to a year, as well as any federal financial aid you may have been granted. You do not want something like a drug charge to potentially cost you your entire education. A Washington criminal lawyer will be able to explain your legal options so that you completely understand your choices before making any decisions.

Washington criminal attorney Jason S. Newcombe has over 30 years of combined legal experience. Criminal defense is one of our primary practice areas, and we represent clients in Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma, Everett, Olympia, Mount Vernon and Bellingham every year with their legal needs. We know that being charged with drug possession is a stressful experience. Our firm is here to listen, answer any questions you have, and fight for you in court.

Consequences of marijuana possession in Washington State.

If you are over 21 and convicted of possessing 40 grams or less of marijuana, it will be classified as a misdemeanor. These types of crimes are punishable with one mandatory day in jail, along with the possibility of spending up to 90. You will also pay a fine anywhere from $250 to $1,000. If you are caught with over 40 grams, this qualifies as a Class C felony and could result in up to 5 years in jail and a $10,000 fine. Even though the use of marijuana is illegal in Washington, there is an exception for medical patients with a valid prescription.
