Martinez-Mercado v. Holder, 2012 WL 3055844 (7/27/12) (unpub'd) - The Lawful Permanent Resident alien did not fit within the exception from removability for having a single offense involving possession of 30 grams or less of marijuana for one's own use because with respect to the same incident he was also convicted of possession of drug paraphernalia. That's two offenses, not a single one. It doesn't matter that the offenses were part of a single scheme.
