About Misdemeanor Drug Possession Charges
Misdemeanor drug possession charges are less serious drug possession charges. Generally, these are the sorts of cases in which someone is found with a limited amount of a controlled substance without the intent to sell or distribute.
One example of this is if someone is found with less than one ounce of marijuana on his or her person. Similarly, being found with certain kinds of drug paraphernalia may result in a misdemeanor drug charge (e.g., a bong, pipe or syringe). Both these instances may also be considered infractions rather than misdemeanors.
Penalties for misdemeanor drug possession cases vary. They may include a fine, jail time of up to one year, and in some cases the suspension of your driver’s license.
