A possession charge involving less than one ounce of marijuana is considered a misdemeanor. Misdemeanor charges can result in penalties that include jail time, loss of driving privileges, fines and a criminal record. If you or a loved one has been charged with misdemeanor drug possession, it is imperative that you find the right attorney that will strive to get your case dismissed and arrest restricted.

In addition, the defense of equal access, that someone else had the same or similar access to the drugs in question, is a critical issue to investigate.
