While states like Colorado and Washington have relaxed their drug possession laws pertaining to small amounts of marijuana, the Commonwealth of Virginia has not and likely will not do the same. Marijuana possession in Virginia is not a charge to be taken lightly. Contact our office at Beckman Schmalzle Georgelas & Ross PLC as soon as you have been charged with possession of marijuana. Talk with Mr. Beckman or Mr. Schmalzle before you give any statements to police, investigators, or anyone else inquiring about your case. The first hours and days after you have been charged with possession of marijuana are often the most important in developing a defense for your case.
