So your 18-year-old son got a simple possession of marijuana charge. It’s anything but simple. Marijuana in the state of Tennessee is illegal. We’re not the “just say no” police; we’re the reality folks that help you in this time of need.
A marijuana charge has ramifications outside of the criminal system, including but not limited to an effect on an ability to get student loans, and to qualify for financial aid packages in the state of Tennessee.
It’s important to have competent legal representation to navigate this morass of confusing laws.
In addition, if an individual has more than two simple possession charges, you can create a situation where a felony charge of marijuana possession arises.
It’s very important to dispose of these matters quickly, promptly, and effectively, so that this unfortunate set of circumstances doesn’t follow your son or daughter for the rest of their life.
