Penalties for possession of marijuana in Manassas
Manassas Park and the City of Manassas charge a lot of people with possession of marijuana.
Despite the fact that many states are becoming more liberal with their marijuana laws, Manassas is still very strict.
If you are convicted of possession of marijuana or any other drug crime in Manassas you will lose your right to drive for 6 months. This six month suspension is mandatory even if you were not driving when the police charged you and even if this is your first offense.
Besides the suspension, a first time marijuana conviction comes with up to 30 days in jail and a $500 fine. If you have a prior conviction for marijuana possession the maximum penalty becomes 12 months in jail and a $2,500 fine. Any conviction for possession of marijuana comes with the mandatory license suspension.
However, just because the maximum penalties for marijuana possession in Manassas are incredibly high that does not mean that you will be convicted or that you will go to jail. It does mean that you should talk to a Manassas lawyer about your possession of marijuana charge.
