Defend Yourself Against Marijuana Possession Charges
North Carolina has “decriminalized” marijuana to a certain extent — but not by much. Currently, getting caught with a very small amount of marijuana for personal use is like getting a traffic ticket.
But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t defend yourself.
If you are caught repeatedly with marijuana, you face escalating charges. Even if you avoided jail time after your first offense, you will almost certainly face jail time for subsequent offenses The best way to help avoid jail and keep your record clean is to hire a criminal defense attorney.
