It is important to note that the NYPD has set out to take a different approach on marijuana possession – a very common charge that led to a summons or a DAT. Now, the NYPD commissioner, Ray Kelly has instructed his officers to make arrests for marijuana possession only when the marijuana is in plain view.

If you have been given a summons or DAT for marijuana possession call our New York Summons Lawyers and our New York DAT Lawyers.
