The consequences of a conviction involving marijuana or other drugs can be very serious. Although any drug offense may result in a sentence of jail or probation, the risk of incarceration is very high in cases involving large quantities of drugs or cultivation of plants. A conviction likely will result in a permanent criminal record, which may harm future job opportunities, among other things.
Criminal conviction for even small quantities of drugs will likely result in a driver's license suspension of up to two years. For students, a drug conviction may affect financial aid packages, scholarships and student housing. For non-U.S. citizens, a drug conviction may have immigration consequences, including the risk of deportation from the United States.
