How much does a marijuana possession charge effect jobs?
New Answer: The occupational implications of a possession of marijuana charge vary drastically depending on a number of factors including, but not limited to, the state the offense was committed in, the amount of marijuana possessed, the plea entered by the defendant, and the punishment assessed. If the possession charge was classified as a misdemeanor, and the defendant plead no contest and served a period of probation, they could file a petition for order of nondisclosure with the state. If the defendant was convicted, and served a period of probation, they may have the conviction "set aside" by the state. If the defendant was, however, convicted of the crime and served a jail sentence rather than serving probation, they essentially have no options. Consequently, one's occupational future can be dramatically impacted. It will surely hinder their chances at finding ideal employment. As a general rule of thumb, your level of desire to obtain a specific job correlates with that job's level of willingness to hire a convicted drug offender. Ergo, the best jobs typically go to those with clean records. Take it from the horse's mouth... I was convicted of possession of marijuana in Texas, served jail time, and now I've come to realize I'm basically screwed. My degree is essentially useless as my field is largely government controlled and my record, from when I was 21 years old, precludes my employability. I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors. Perhaps your path will be a little less rocky than mine has been.

Answer . Your plant will more than likely contain THC, which is the illegal substance in MJ. So, even with no buds, you would still have the illegal substance in your plan…t. If you were to scrape the plant leaves or stems, you will more than likely find THC on it.
posession of marijuana, felony posession of marijuana, posession of marijuana with intent to distribute, marijuana trafficking, and more. it depents on exactly what you …did or are doing with the marijuana and also what state you live in. in foreign contrys the laws are different ranging from legal to posess marijuana to extremely heavy concequences for posession. do a google search and be specific.
take to "higher" authorities
Possession of marijuana is only a misdameanor and you should be able to expunge it pretty quickly. Just make sure you do get it expunged before you apply or they wont hire you… whether you get it expunged or not lol.
For 20g or less, misdemeanor, 1 year in prison and $1,000 fine. For more than 20g it is a felony with 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
well, im 16 and i got placed in an alternative school for 30 days and your home campus <may> decide to permanately kick you out of your entire ISD
How much time will you serve in jail if you have a failure to appear charge and possession of marijuana?
In California it hold a 90 day sentence along with some fines. In other states like Texas for example I have seen people spend a year in jail for it. Plus it depends on …the judge.
Most gas stations will hire just about anyone... next time be more careful, you idiot. It's harder to get caught then not get caught.
if it's your first offence no jail time at all but you'll have fines to pay and probation fee's as while........
yes and the real names POT :P
The law is listed on NORML's website (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws). In 1974, the state of Mississippi decriminalized the possession of small amoun…ts of marijuana for personal use. I believe the amount is less than 1 ounce but you should check that site to be sure. The penalty is a fine (no jail) for first offense possession. The exceptions are if you carry the marijuana in your vehicle's passenger compartment. The vehicle may be seized and you will be taken to jail in this case. You must put the marijuana in your trunk to avoid seizure/forfeiture of your vehicle and/or jail. There might also be rules against possessing marijuana within a certain distance of schools and government buildings. Check the website to be sure. They are very thorough. Basically if you are on your own private property (in your house), and have less than an ounce in your possession for your own personal use and are caught by police, you will be issued a ticket (fine). You will not be taken to jail unless you have committed other offences or attempt to destroy evidence or interfere with the duties of law enforcement.
If you're in jail...do you think you have a job? But seriously, MJ is technically not as much physiologically addictive as it is psychologically addictive. You start out takin…g MJ when you're feeling down or you need to relax. Maybe you have a test coming up, so you smoke pot. Had a bad day at work, smoke pot. Soon enough you rely on MJ to get you through things. You've never learned to cope with things without pot. Pot stunts your emotional health dramatically. Even recreational smokers (smoking anything is bad for your lungs), need to this into consideration. Bottom line, employers see pot smokers as people who can't do their job right. -Dr. Anderton-
Depends on what state you're in. Every state is different when it comes to their laws on matters of that nature.
