Marijuana Possession Over 10 Grams In Maryland

The recent liberalization of marijuana laws in Maryland have led some people to think that marijuana possession is no longer a crime. Although penalties for possession of less than 10 grams of marijuana have been reduced, possession of more than 10 grams is still a misdemeanor crime.

Possession of just over 10 grams of marijuana could result in a jail sentence of up to one year and a fine of up to $1,000. In addition, you will have a criminal record that could adversely affect your educational and career choices. If you have a security clearance, you could lose that clearance and consequently your job.
