Hello and welcome to Just Answer.
Possession of marijuana in any amount is punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $2,000, unless the possession occurred in a public or private park, which increases the penalty to a possible 2 years in prison. Conditional discharge is available in all use and possession cases. The state allows conditional release or alternative or diversion sentencing for people facing their first prosecutions. Usually, conditional release lets a person opt for probation rather than trial. After successfully completing probation, the individual's criminal record does not reflect the charge. Your son or daughter is advised to seek the counsel of a local attorney to ensure that their best interests are protected.
