Possession of an ounce or less of marijuana is a non-criminal offense in Massachusetts. If the police can articulate certain factors that highlight possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, the offense may become criminal. Some of the common indicia of an intent to distribute are:
- Multiple ringing cell phones;
- Individually wrapped bags;
- Hidden compartments in vehicles.
