A conviction for possessing, distributing or growing marijuana can have dramatic effects on your life. Criminal penalties may include heavy fines and jail time. Additionally, a drug crime conviction could have adverse effects on your employment status. If you are a student, you may face expulsion or other penalties.
If you have been charged with a marijuana crime, your first step should be to contact a criminal defense lawyer. The earlier you do so, the more your attorney can do to protect your rights and minimize the penalties you may be facing.
