Mass. court: Intent to sell pot still a crime

•  Recent Cases     updated  2012/02/14 09:42


The state’s highest court has ruled that a person can still be criminally charged with attempting to distribute marijuana even when the amount of the drug discovered is less than an ounce.

But the court left open the question of whether those criminal charges can also be leveled against people sharing a marijuana cigarette.

The court’s decision was intended to help clarify a 2008 voter-approved ballot question that decriminalized possession of small amounts of pot. Someone caught with less than an ounce of marijuana now faces a $100 fine instead of jail time.
