1. If you have no prior criminal convictions, you are likely to get the benefit of the Probation Act if you have been found in possession of 3 grams of marijuana. This type of offence is on the lower end of the scale, so you will not be heavily penalised. However, I would advise you to get a solicitor to represent you to do a good plea in mitigation. Very often the sentence in this type of case depends upon the Defendant presenting themselves well in court and being represented. Otherwise you are likely to get a large fine. So, dress well - put on a suit - and get a solicitor who is experienced in District Court matters. This will ensure you get off lightly.
