Get in touch with my firm when you are arrested for a marijuana crime and I can work to fight your charges.

Don’t face the charges alone!

While most marijuana offenses are considered misdemeanors, they are still serious and can remain on your record, preventing you from getting a job potentially. You need the help of a criminal defense specialist to fight any type of drug charges you face.

Penalties for a marijuana conviction include:

  • Possession of 28.5 grams or less--$100 fine
  • Possession of 28.5 grams or less while under 18—10 days in a detention center and a $500 fine
  • Possession of more than 28.5 grams—6 months in jail and a $500 fine
  • Cultivation of any amount—up to 3 years in jail

In addition, you could have your driving privileges suspended if convicted of a drug crime.

We defend your rights!

Just because you are arrested for marijuana possession does not mean you will automatically be convicted. Its needs to be proved that you had control of the drugs in question even if they were not found on your person. Otherwise you cannot be charged with possession.

Police do not have a right to search your home or vehicle without a warrant or probable cause. If they did so, your charges could be dropped as well.
