Marijuana Possession Under 10 Grams In Maryland

In 2012, Maryland reduced penalties for possession of less than 10 grams of marijuana. Now, the penalty for a first-time offense is a fine of $100. While that is good news for the occasional pot user, a marijuana possession citation is still something to be avoided.

Being found in possession of less than 10 grams of marijuana is still a violation of the law, and a citation could go on your record. This record may limit your educational and career options. This can be particularly damaging for those who have security clearances.

Possession of drug paraphernalia is still a crime. Ironically, the same event could result in a simple citation for possession of less than 10 grams and a criminal possession of paraphernalia charge. Don't take chances with your future. It may be possible to limit the adverse effects of a marijuana citation or a drug paraphernalia charge.
