The consequence of an arrest for marijuana may depend on the amount in one’s possession. A second or subsequent conviction may increase the penalty. It should be noted that if a person is convicted of a drug crime within one thousand feet of a school or two hundred and fifty feet of a playground, additional penalties may apply.
The consequences of a conviction for possession of other drugs, including cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and other designer drugs can vary depending on the amount and circumstances in possession of the defendant as well as prior record. Therefore, it is essential to have legal representation for such charges.
