In Washington State, being caught in the possession of less than 40 grams of marijuana is considered a serious criminal offense.

Though a misdemeanor, a Seattle possession of marijuana conviction could make a permanent mark on your criminal record, affecting your ability to obtain a driver’s license (even if you were not caught in possession while driving) as well as your ability to obtain federal financial aid to attend college.

At the law offices of criminal defense attorney Jason S. Newcombe, our team of VUSCA and possession of marijuana lawyers has over 30 years of combined experience fighting for the rights of our clients in court. With a thorough knowledge of the Washington justice system, we are prepared to take on your case and have the charges against you reduced or even dropped. I’ve been accused of Seattle possession of marijuana. What will happen to me?

In Seattle, the possession of less than 40 grams of marijuana is considered a misdemeanor, meaning that – if convicted – you could face a maximum penalty of up to 90 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. As a VUSCA-related misdemeanor, you may face a minimum penalty of one day in jail and a fine of $250 if convicted.

Possession of over 40 grams of marijuana, cultivation of marijuana, delivery of marijuana, and sale of marijuana in Washington State are all class C felonies. If convicted, you may face a maximum penalty of up to 5 years in jail and a fine of up to $10,000. The courts may also argue that you possessed such a high quantity of marijuana with the intention of selling, which means you could be charged with a more serious crime based on circumstantial evidence. Discussing your situation with a Seattle possession of marijuana lawyer will help determine your options and the best course of action for you.
