In Arkansas for can receive up to 1000 fine, one year in jail, and six month dl suspension for possession of less than one once of marijuana. It is considered a misdemeanor. If you had over an once it is a felony and punishable 4-10 years in prison, up to $25,000 fine, 6 month dl suspension, and a $250 DNA fee (this is for amounts less than 10 lbs.) The jail time is usually suspended for first time offenders and probation is likely. The fine is usually around $1000 for either the felony or the misdemeanor. They may require some community service. As a first time offender you should be eligible for expungement, but under act 346 it must be requested at the time of sentencing. Call a criminal defense attorney about your specific case and they can tell you what options you have available to you.
