    i know someone has had to have already asked this Q. but i couldn't find anything after searching
    anyway iwas curious as to wether or not its the same charge for a couple of freshly cut buds vs second hand weed
    lets say its obvious to an officer that the misdemeanor amount of bud that he just confiscated was freshly harvested
    would that mean a manufacturing charge?

    I think that would depend on if the buds where still on the stem with fan leaves and if you had grow pots and equipment out he could see. I think here in Michigan a plant is considered one when rooted but I am medical. Other the that its personal you just keep it really fresh and smoke it from a bowl.

    No, fresh bud would still be a simple possesion charge, you would have to have a plant in a container growing for a cultivation charge, which is a felony where I live in CT.

    If it was a pound of fresh weed, the charge would be a pound?
    but then in court it would weigh 1/4 pound, does that effect charges?o_O

    Do they actually bring weed into a courtroom as evidence? Or do the police merely say x kg of plant?

    It would be the actual weight at the time of arrest, but once you are over a 1/4 lb, it is the same as having a pound as far as penalties go That's why I never sell more than a 1/4 lb at a time, It's a big difference in penalties.
    Less than a quarter, it's a misdemeanor, above that it's a felony.

    in your state. mine has very different rules.
    point is, a pound loses 75% weight when dry. I wondered how that effects charges, evidence.
    thanks, sounds like your town is more lenient than mine...

    In most places, yes, it would greatly affect the charges. To the point that it may get the case thrown out, as any decent lawyer would delay as long as possible, then demand the evidence be shown in court, and measured. If 3/4 of it magically vanished... well... not only is the charge different, it makes the cops look guilty as fuck...

    IF the weed even lasts that long b4 cops really DO steal it, lol....

    but if its in an airtight container, it was all for nothing.

    Unfortunately they are schooled to obfuscate and confuse a jury.

    D: "You weighed everything, including stalks and stems"
    Cop: " Drug dealers, like HIM (pointing to def), chop it all up and sell it all"
    D: "You weighed it wet, it doesn't weight 1/4 pound now"
    Cop: "Drug dealers like HIM (pointing to def), sell by weight, they sell it wet"
    D: "You weighed DIRT"
    Cop "We weighed what drug dealers like HIM sell"

    and so it goes.....

    Some area's can charge you with a manfacture charge as well. Area/ situation dependent.

    So what if you have a sack of young dead vegged plants, chopped at the base? Could they add those on top of any lives ones even though the root ball is missing and they're dead? No proof to show whether it's 1 plant or 20 right? And what if there were no other live plants, just dead ones that haven't been pitched yet, still manufacturing?

    SnakierGrizzly Well-Known Member

    yeh thats a charge
