Re: marijuna posesion

First time offenders accused of simple possession of marijuana may be placed

on probation with conditions(deferred disposition) and if all such conditions are successfully met, may then have their case closed by the court without a record of conviction. (See Va. Code Sec. 18.2-251.)
