Marijuana Possession can be a very serious charge. In New Jersey countless of people are arrested each year for this charge, largely in part because in some states, marijuana use is legal. While you may think that it is not really a “drug”, as far as the law is considered, it is, and they take it very seriously. If you are found in possession of marijuana in New Jersey you are almost certainly going to be arrested and charged.

There are two levels of possession in the state of New Jersey. Less than 50 grams is considered a disorderly persons offense, which can result in up to 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $1000. In addition you can face driver’s license suspension of up to 24 months, and additional fees and assessments.
If you are found in possession of 50 grams or more of marijuana your offense is considered indictable, which means that your penalties go up significantly.
