Restrictions for the hardship license in Louisiana

One of the biggest inconveniences that comes with charges of DWI is a suspension of your driving privileges. A first offense in the Bayou State alone results in a one-year license suspension, and it increases with subsequent convictions. You might not have access to a vehicle for a while, so how are you supposed to go to necessary places like work or school?

When do marijuana charges become felonies in Louisiana?

Minor marijuana crimes, such as possession of 14 grams or less, come with equally minor legal ramifications. In Louisiana, a first offense conviction for that type of possession carries a maximum $300 fine and a maximum of 15 days in jail. The state also has medical marijuana laws, so it is possible to use the drug legally under the right circumstances.
