What happens after my first drug offense for possession of marijuana and is it possible to get it off my record? 7 Answers as of January 07, 2014Recently I was charged with POM, but I wasn’t arrested. This is my second time being arrested. The first time was for public intoxication. I am in the process of graduating college so this tough pill to swallow knowing this will be on my record.

If this happened in Missouri and you pleaded guilty or were convicted, then it's not possible to get the conviction expunged. If you have not been convicted yet, hire an attorney to represent you in court. Your attorney may be able to get the charge dismissed or amended to a lesser offense.

You likely will be sentenced to having a drug and alcohol evaluation and any recommended treatment, do community service, pay a fine and have no further criminal violations. This charge cannot be expunged until you have completed all of the terms of your sentenced and probation. This will impact your ability to get an apartment, a loan, and possibly a job.
