Marijuana Diversion Program
The Marijuana Diversion Program allows individuals who have been charged with possession of a small amount of marijuana to have charges dismissed after attending a 3-hour educational session provided by COCA.
Referral to the Marijuana Diversion Program is initiated by the Magisterial District Judge at the preliminary arraignment. Participants must pay COCA a non-refundable $50 fee prior to attending the program, and may also be responsible for any court costs assessed by the judge.
Those who choose to participate must complete the program within 60 days following his/her preliminary arraignment.
