Marijuana Possession Laws In Pennsylvania

Despite a trend toward legalization nationwide, Pennsylvania still criminalizes unauthorized possession of marijuana. Possession of up to 30 grams of marijuana is an ungraded misdemeanor punishable by up to 30 days of incarceration. Rarely are people charged with this crime jailed. Far more significant a penalty is the six-month license suspension assessed by PennDOT upon a conviction for possession of even a small amount of marijuana.

Trusted Representation To Minimize Penalties

Lawyers can sometimes negotiate with police and with the district attorney to avoid this unfortunate result and keep driving privileges intact by persuading the police or district attorney to charge a different crime. In Pennsylvania, even a small amount of marijuana can cause serious consequences.
