St. Paul Marijuana Possession Defense Attorney
There is a great deal of controversy surrounding marijuana and whether it should be legalized. Several states have legalized marijuana for medical purposes, and initiatives are underway in an increasing number of states to legalize it for recreational use as well. In Minnesota, recent changes in the law have made it possible for extracted forms of marijuana to be used for certain medical purposes. Use or possession of the plant form for any purpose, however, remains a criminal offense.
Under Minnesota law, possession of up to 42.5 grams of marijuana for personal use is a petty misdemeanor which is punishable by a fine of up to $300. Anything over 42.5 grams is a felony offense that can result in much more severe fines and mandatory jail time, depending on the weight and other circumstances. A conviction on any marijuana possession charge will create a permanent criminal record that can interfere with your educational and employment opportunities as well as your ability to find housing or obtain a loan.
