There has been a great deal of public debate throughout the country in recent years over whether marijuana should be legalized. Some jurisdictions have made significant changes to their laws controlling possession of small amounts of pot. In Virginia, knowingly or intentionally possessing marijuana remains a crime. For college students at Virginia Tech, Radford University, and other schools in southwest Virginia, a misdemeanor conviction for possession of marijuana can have long-lasting consequences.
Do Not Let Drug Charges Derail Your Future
If you are accused of a drug offense and are still in school, your financial aid may be at risk. Certainly, with the use of background checks, a misdemeanor conviction can impact future housing, job, and military opportunities.
