Minor in Possession (often called MIP) is defined under RCW 66.44.270 as a “person under the age of 21 who consumes, possesses, or otherwise acquires any type of alcohol.” Although listed in a different statute (RCW 69.50.4013), the laws for MIP also apply to cannabis and other drugs as well. Notably, an adult can also be charged under the statute for “furnishing the period of restriction following sentencing. A conviction for this charge can also carry possible mandatory minimum probation sentences under RCW 46.61.5055(14) if the person is on probation for a DUI offense. These types of probation violations can include a 30-day period of confinement and additional license suspensions. Accordingly, an interlock violation charge should always be taken seriously as there are many different ramifications that can stem from a conviction.
