A drug-related conviction, even for a minor offense, can result in serious consequences for an accused individual in Maryland. In addition to criminal punishments like fines, community service and jail time, the conviction will stay on your record and be available for employers to see. Students could also lose their ability to qualify for educational loans, and they could be expelled from their schools.
