Getting a drug charge in Arkansas is pretty serious. Knowing your rights is important, especially if the drug is marijuana. While the laws are very divergent from one state to the next, Arkansas does not have a medical marijuana law in place, so if you are caught with this drug, there will be penalty. Of course, if you are caught with methamphetamines or heroin, the charges will be much steeper, but taking a look at the charges for marijuana can keep you from getting in trouble.
The court in Arkansas has a bit of leeway or discretion when it comes to incarcerating a person with marijuana on their person or on their property. For small amounts, you could be in prison for one year if you have less than four ounces and you haven't been arrested before this.
