North Carolina Marijuana Possession Lawyers
While most marijuana possession charges are misdemeanor charges, they can have serious consequences.
Marijuana is a Schedule VI controlled substance under North Carolina law. According to N.C.G.S. §90-95(d)(4), possession of up to ½ ounce is a Class 3 misdemeanor; possession of ½ ounce to 1 ½ ounces is a Class 1 misdemeanor. Any amount above that is a felony. If you have prior marijuana possession convictions, you can be punished at higher levels. Refer to this sentencing page to learn more.
While these cases may seem pretty simple, we often see cases where officers charge several people with the possession of one joint, or one small baggie of marijuana. That can often create doubt about who actually possessed the drugs. Additionally, we will assess your case to determine if there is a solid legal argument to suppress evidence against for a violation of your Fourth Amendment rights to protect your record.
