Free Motion to Dismiss MJ Offense

August 22, 2013

Here is a self help motion to dismiss free to CO NORML members and guests:

If arrested or given a summons for Possession of MJ, here is a motion you should file as soon as the court has a case number if the following circumstances apply:

  • Adult (over 21 years of age on day of alleged crime)
  • Amount of MJ is less than 1 ounce
  • MJ was not openly used or displayed in public
  • Date of offense was after January 1, 2013
  • Offense was in Colorado

If the DA does not dismiss at first appearance, then people should contact me, Jason Savela, or another CO NORML attorneyprior to setting motions and trial.

The police should return all MJ and all MJ paraphernalia.

Remember that if you add facts to the motion, they will be deemed admitted by YOU. Just put in the facts as needed by this motion.
