When you’re caught in possession of more than 10 pounds of marijuana in Buffalo, prosecutors will charge you with Criminal Possession of Marijuana in the First Degree (NY PL 221.30), a Class C Felony that can land you in state prison for as long as five and a half years, with a mandatory one year minimum.
Criminal possession of marijuana (marihuana) in the first degree is an extremely serious criminal charge in Buffalo, and one that prosecutors always intend to win.
You may be charged under NY PL 221.30 on its own or as part of a larger drug case, but whatever the circumstances, you’re facing significant exposure to jail and other sanctions if convicted.
The attorneys at Friedman & Ranzenhofer protect people in Buffalo from even the most serious criminal charges.
