New Jersey passed a law that legalized the possession of up to 6 ounces or less of marijuana in 2021. The penalties for marijuana possession in New Jersey are serious if you are found possessing over 6 ounces. A conviction for marijuana possession, over 6 ounces, may result in the following consequences:
In addition, a conviction of marijuana possession will result in a criminal record. Because criminal offenses are matters of public record, a routine background check will show any prior arrests or convictions that have not been expunged. This may close doors for future employment and relationship opportunities.
A charge of possession of marijuana in an amount exceeding 6 ounces and a charge of possession with the intention to sell or distribute is an indictable offense. Indictable offenses arising out of Bloomfield are handled at Essex County Superior Court, located at 50 West Market Street in Newark.
