Minnesota Drug Crimes

The drugs do not have to be on your person for you to be in possession. Constructive possession is where the drugs are found in a place under your exclusive control to which other people did not normally have access, or if found in a place to which others had access, you knowingly exercised dominion and control over it. Constructive possession is more difficult to prove especially if you had passengers or it is not your car.
A small amount of marijuana means 42.5 grams or less. In most cases, a person in possession of a small amount of marijuana is only guilty of a petty misdemeanor. Possessing or selling any amount over 42.5 grams is a felony level offense.
