Marijuana Possession

Marijuana Possession and/or Possession for Sale can be a serious criminal offense. If you’re accused of possessing marijuana or possessing marijuana for sale in Hawaii, you could face stiff fines, probation, and even serious time in jail.

The penalties for marijuana possession vary. Mere possession of a small amount of marijuana is a petty misdemeanor, punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. With a good attorney, familiar with the marijuana laws in Hawaii, the punishment can be greatly reduced.

If the prosecutor can prove that you possessed marijuana with the intent to sell it, your situation is much more dire. This is can be a felony crime with mandatory imprisonment upon conviction. Though the burden of proof lies upon the prosecutor, various factors could affect the conviction, such as an address book with potential clients or a large amount of cash on hand at the time of the arrest.
