By itself, possession of an ounce or less of marijuana is no longer a criminal offense in Massachusetts. However, marijuana drug possession of an ounce or less when coupled with other evidence may support a charge of possession with intent to distribute, which is a criminal offense. When determining if there is sufficient evidence to support a charge of possession with intent to distribute, common questions will include:
- how was the marijuana packaged;
- were there any scales or weighing devices found;
- was the marijuana part of a larger stash.
When facing such a drug charge, it is important to have a drug possession attorney who will contest the evidence of an intention to distribute. Contact Shane W. Surrette at (774) 364-4605 or at [email protected] today.
