Possession of Marijuana — Mobile, Alabama Drug Charge Defense Attorneys

In Alabama, including Mobile and Baldwin counties, the vast majority of criminal drug arrests are marijuana based. Although possession and use of marijuana has been legalized in some form or fashion in a majority of the states and Washington, D.C., Alabama continues to heavily penalize and punish even low-level offenders.

First offense possession of marijuana for personal use is a Class A misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of 1 year in jail. Second offense possession is a felony. The criminalization of recreational marijuana has led to massive prison-overcrowding and the incarceration of thousands of non-violent offenders.
