Possession of Marijuana in Louisiana

I often get questions on all sorts of topics as a criminal attorney, but more often than not I get questions regarding possession of marijuana charges and penalties. What I have found is that most citizens do not realize that, generally speaking, a second possession of marijuana or synthetic cannabinoid is a felony charge. Possession of marijuana charges are enhanceable offences, which means the penalty increases if a person is convicted of a second possession of marijuana charge.
