Marijuana Tickets

Justice Court has jurisdiction over tickets for the violation of Possession of Less Than One Ounce of Marijuana.

The violation has a minimum fine of $653 and a maximum fine of $1093. In addition, the Legislature requires that the court direct the Oregon DMV to suspend the defendant's driving privileges for a six month period.

DIVERSION. If a defendant has not been convicted of any substance abuse crimes or violations and is not now or in the past participated in a substance abuse diversion program, a defendant may choose to petition the court for a Marijuana Diversion. Diversion lasts for one year and requires the defendant to be drug free, to be evaluated by a drug evaluator, and to participate in the treatment or counseling that the evaluator may recommend.

The costs for diversion are a $335 court fee, $150 to the evaluator, and the cost of the treatment program.

A diversion petition form is available from the court.

The Oregon Health Division operates the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program.
