Protecting Your Rights When You Are Facing A Marijuana Charge
While some states in the U.S. have decriminalized marijuana use and reduced penalties for possession, others continue to impose harsh penalties. If you’re charged with marijuana possession in the Omaha-Council Bluffs metropolitan area, where you are charged can make a difference.
In Nebraska, first-time offenders convicted of possessing up to an ounce of marijuana are required pay a $300 fine and attend a mandatory course. In Iowa, the same conviction carries additional penalties, which may include jail time and losing driving privileges.
