How old are they? Usually your first offence marijuana charge is just going to be maybe 1-2 nights in ja.il (not always though), probation for a year, community service, and possibly substance abuse classes.

Answer #3

Out in cali my brother got caught driving with .5 oz and nothing happened to him, just went to court and had to pay a fine. It was considered a misdemeanor. I’m not sure how the laws work in Illinois, but if you get caught with a certain amount or more (i.e. over an ounce), he can get arrested and or pay a fine

Answer #4

i reckon he/she should get at least 5 years in prison
