Marijuana Posession in CT

Posted on by John J. Ghidini

Common issue that came to my attention from a colleague. In the State of Connecticut possession of less than a 1/2 ounce of marijuana is now a civil infraction (decriminalized). However, if you are under the age of 21, and you simply pay the fine associated with this ticket, the Department of Motor Vehicles will suspend your driver's license. This suspension will occur no matter if you were driving or not when you received your ticket.
