states simple possession of less than 100 grams carries a $100 fine and is a minor misdemeanor that does not create a criminal record.

Conditional release: 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.

So it looks like you can avoid probation by agreeing to pay the fine.
