Cannabis Laws for Mount Vernon, MO

In the state of New York, possession of up to 2 ounces of marijuana is a non-criminal offense. “Marijuana” doesn’t just include the plant itself, it also includes the seeds or any oil or resin extracted from the plant. Although arrest is unlikely, it is still possible to be arrested for possession of under 2 ounces of marijuana. That is why it’s important to know the facts! 

If you are caught with 1-2 ounces of marijuana in your possession, you may be fined anywhere from $50 to $200. However, an arrest can occur if you don’t have proper form of identification or if you have any outstanding warrants. 

So what if you have more than 2 ounces in your possession? If you have over 2 ounces of marijuana in your possession, this is considered a criminal offense and you may be arrested and criminally charged. However, it's important to note that medical marijuana use and possession is legal in New York State if you have a valid Medical Marijuana Card.

Worried about being drug tested at your prospective employer? New York City has recently banned pre-employment drug testing for marijuana if it is a non-safety-sensitive job. For example, if you are a bus driver for an elementary school, this is a high-safety-sensitive job and you may be drug tested for pre-employment. 

Even if your job is non-safety-sensitive, there are still ways that employers can drug test you for pre-employment. If you’re unsure if your prospective employer is allowed to drug test, make sure to check the legislation. (See Int. No. 1445-A)
