It is important to remember that even with the change in the law, possession of any quantity of marijuana is still illegal. If the police catch you with more than half an ounce, you could still face jail time and increased fines as well as a criminal record. Additionally, if you are caught smoking pot in your car, you could face charges for driving under the influence.
