If you are charged with any of these crimes, the penalties you face depend upon two factors. The first is how much marijuana was in your possession. The second is whether or not you have been convicted of a drug-related crime before. Clearly, if you were caught with a large amount of pot and had been convicted on an earlier occasion, you are more likely to be facing a stiff penalty. Nonetheless, even if this is a first offense, you could still be looking at some pretty tough consequences.
