Marijuana Possession Attorneys in Dover, NJ

Individuals charged with marijuana possession in Dover, New Jersey, are required to appear in the Dover Joint Municipal Court if the case is a disorderly persons offense or in Morris County Superior Court if the charge is for a fourth degree marijuana crime. Where a marijuana case is handled depends on the grading of the charges, which are determined by the measured weight of marijuana in your possession at the time of your arrest. According to the New Jersey statute that governs possession of marijuana, NJSA 2C:35-10, possessing 50 grams or less of weed is classified as a disorderly persons offense. When the amount of marijuana in your possession exceeds 50 grams, this is a fourth degree crime which is then sent to the Superior Court in the county where the charges were filed. Regardless of the degree of your marijuana possession charges in Dover, we strongly suggest you do not attempt to handle your case on your own.
