Just because the cocaine crimes amount of marijuana found on your person is less than 30 grams does not mean you are not able to be charged with possession with intent to deliver, a much more serious offense. If it is under 30 grams of marijuana, a way for the court to determine if it is for sales is by assessing factors such as whether the marijuana was individually packaged and if you are not found in possession of paraphernalia to indicate personal use.
