I received a ticket for possession of a very small amount of marijuana I forgot about the ticket. My liscnce has been suspended. You have to see the judge at 36th district to find out the amount of the fine. How much is a fine usually for the offense? Will my liscnce be reinstated after I pay the ticket?
Most tickets for possession of MJ are misdemeanors, a criminal matter, so you will need to make sure that you have a civil infraction before finalizing the ticket. If it is a criminal charge, you will likely need to have a default set aside before you can do anything. Once it is set aside, you will want to have a meeting with the prosecutor to see about removing the criminal charge. If it is a civil infraction, you may also want to seek to have that changed to avoid any impact on your license, if that is the reason is was suspended. It would be wise to retain an attorney for this process as that is the best way to make sure it is done properly, and significantly increases your chance for a successful resolution.
