If you have been charged with possession of marijuana in Arlington County you may be shocked to discover how harshly Arlington County deals with possession of marijuana.
Despite the recent liberalization of marijuana laws in other states, possession of marijuana in Arlington Virginia is a criminal offense. Conviction for marijuana possession will remain on your permanent adult record forever.
A first offense marijuana possession charge comes with a mandatory six month license suspension regardless of whether or not you were driving while in possession. First offense marijuana possession can come with up to 30 days in jail and a $500 fine. A second or subsequent conviction can result in up to 12 months in jail and $2,500 in fines. All drug convictions come with a six month license suspension.
However, just because you can be put in jail for possession of marijuana does not mean that you will be put in jail. Additionally, there is not guarantee that you will even be convicted.
