Marijuana Bail Bonds in Connecticut
Connecticut has decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana. However, it is noteworthy that other forms of marijuana like hash and other concentrates have their own sets of penalties. Possession of marijuana is normally viewed more favorably than intent to sell. The more marijuana you are arrested with, the worse of a punishment the prosecution will seek and the higher your bail will be set. Possession of one-half ounce or less results in a civil penalty of $150 to $500 (first and second offenses). Alliance Bail Bonds is here to offer you a quick release program that will get you home and back to your life as quickly as possible.

Marijuana Charges and Bail Amounts
The legal penalties of marijuana possession and distribution can vary significantly depending on other factors, for example, the amount, intent, your arresting officer, age, and circumstances of the arrest. For a first offense, if the amount of possession is less than half an ounce, the maximum fine is $150. Any more than that can lead to one to five years of jail time and fines up to $2,000. For a subsequent offense, if the amount is less than a half ounce, the maximum fine is up to $500. If the amount is more than four ounces, the maximum amount of time in jail is ten years and a fine up to $5,000.
