Grand Rapids Marijuana Defense Lawyer
Experienced Western Michigan Drug Crime Attorneys
Several years ago, Michigan passed laws which allow doctors to recommend marijuana as a medical treatment for qualifying patients. However, this does not mean that the use of marijuana is now free game or that everyone has the legal right to use or purchase it. Marijuana is still highly regulated and law enforcement and prosecutors take violations extremely seriously. At Blanchard Law, we offer dedicated representation to individuals who have been accused of marijuana-related offenses.
Our drug crime attorneys in Grand Rapids represent all types of crimes involving marijuana, including:
- Use of marijuana without a doctor recommendation
- Possession without a doctor recommendation
- Distribution or sale
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Manufacturing or growing
- Driving under the influence of marijuana
Aggressive Defense for Marijuana-Related Crimes
The two most common offenses involving marijuana are usage and possession charges. Possessing marijuana without a doctor recommendation is typically charged as a misdemeanor unless you have a prior drug conviction, in which case it may be charged as a felony. Using marijuana without a doctor recommendation is typically considered a misdemeanor offense.
The penalties for these drug crimes depend on the nature of the offense, the amount involved, and your criminal history. You can rely on us to put together an effective defense strategy, which may involve a medical marijuana defense.
