Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 

        The least serious marijuana charge in New York State is Unlawful Possession of Marijuana.  This charge is New York Penal Law Section 221.05

        If you are caught possessing less than one ounce of marijuana (approximately), then you are guilty of Unlawful Possession of Marijuana. There are exceptions to this.  For example, if the marijuana was burning at the time you were caught possessing it, you will likely be charged with a more serious offense. 

        Unlawful Possession of Marijuana is not a crime in New York State. Rather, Unlawful Possession of Marijuana is classified as a violation, which is the legal equivalent of a traffic ticket.

Marijuana Possession and Student Loans  

        Some people believe that since Unlawful Possession of Marijuana is a mere violation, that they should not fight it. Do not fall into this trap.  If you are convicted of Unlawful Possession of Marijuana there may be serious consequences, the most prominent of which is that you may be disqualified from receiving Federal student loan financing.  Further, the conviction could disqualify you for certain employment opportunities.  Do not sacrifice your future. If you are charged with marijuana possession, hire our Albany, NY Marijuana Possession Lawyers.
