Understanding Marijuana Crimes & Penalties
There is often much confusion surrounding what is legal and what is not when it comes to marijuana possession and other similar crimes. Even if you are running a perfectly legal marijuana collective or cooperative, you may make a small error that results in serious criminal charges. Whatever the case, I am here to provide the counsel you need moving forward.
The following marijuana crimes carry serious penalties and consequences:
- Possession:If you are accused of having more than 28.5 grams of marijuana on your possession, you could be facing a misdemeanor, months in prison, and hundreds of dollars in fines. If you are found to be in possession with the intent to sell, the charges could be increased to a felony.
- Sale or delivery: If you are caught selling or delivering marijuana, in any amount, it could result in a felony, which carries years behind bars.
- Cultivation: If you are found to be cultivating marijuana plants you will be facing a felony level offense and up to three years in jail.
- Possession of paraphernalia: Even for simply having drug paraphernalia in your possession, such as a pipe or growing tools, you could face a misdemeanor, thousands of dollars in fines, and up to a year in jail.
There are also additional penalties and charges associated with possessing concentrated cannabis or other forms of marijuana, such as hash. Even driving under the influence of marijuana could result in serious criminal charges.
With such strict laws against the use, sale, or cultivation of marijuana, it is crucial that you retain my counsel right away. I can fight to have your charges reduced or dropped, using strategic legal solutions to secure the best possible outcome. Contact my firm today if you are ready to fight your charges!
