How Marijuana Cultivation is Charged
Marijuana cultivation is charged as possession of marijuana. As a result, the degree of the offense, and the corresponding punishment, are determined by the amount found in your possession.
The consequences warranted by a conviction of marijuana possession can include:
- Suspension of driver’s license
- Jail or prison time
- Heavy fines
- Additional fines for trafficking
If you operate a grow house, you are liable to face additional penalties for illegal drug activity. You could also face further fines for the sale of the drug and for avoiding stamp tax. Even the lightest charges can result in exorbitant fines. You can also face criminal charges for owning a property where marijuana is grown, even if you are not involved in the growing process.
