You should hire a lawyer and get this relatively minor charge dismissed. By yourself you're going to get a criminal record, and it isn't worth it.

You will be charged with possession of marijuana. Aside from possible jail, probation, and fines and costs, there are mandatory drivers license sanctions. Consult with an experienced criminal attorney in your area as there may be sentencing options available to you that can limit the damage and keep your public record clean.

    You will receive a citation from the police officer and you will be given a court date. If you hire an attorney to represent you, the attorney can probably get the marijuana charge dismissed or reduced to a lesser offense, and you probably won't have to appear in court, but you will have to pay a fine and court costs, or be on probation.

    Well, that depends upon many things. First, was it a valid stop? Second, did the stop exceed the scope of the reason for the stop? Third, if it was a valid stop and a valid search, how much marijuana was involved? It could be as low as a violation, if it's less than an ounce, a misdemeanor if less than 4 ounces, then it grows in significance after that weight. Also, it depends upon packaging, etc... many factors.
