What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Virginia
I will probably be charged with a posession of marijuana ticket in Virginia, and my question is what are the requirements for it to be a first offense? About 14 years ago I was charged with possession of morphine and marijuana. The morphine ticket was reduced to misdemeanor possession of a schedule three controlled substance, and the marijuana charge was dismissed upon my completion of probation. Since I have never been convicted of any marijuana crimes would it still be a first offense and fall into the punishment for first offenders?
