marihuana dismissal...

Under cpl 210.46 New York Courts are permitted to grant an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal for one year, however where there is a need for an earlier dismissal he court nay dismiss the case outright earlier than the one year permitted under this rule.

In many cases, where holding open the case for a Period of one year may have a gravely negative impact on the defendant the dismissal in the interest of justice under 210.46 may be a very valid option that defense counsel may want to consider.
