• If you are charged with possession of marijuana under 50 grams, the case goes to municipal court in the town you were charged in; here you will be charged with a disorderly person’s offense, also called a misdemeanor.
  • The maximum penalty for this offense is 6 months in custody.
  • Anything over 50 grams is a felony offense that could result in a state prison sentence of up to 5 years.
  • In either case, contact an experienced attorney.
