Medical Marijuana Laws and Southfield Drug Crime Defense

The laws surrounding medical marijuana use by patients in Southfield are contained in the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. According to this act, anyone who has been issued and possesses a valid registry identification card cannot be arrested or subjected to any civil penalties for medical use of marijuana, provided he or she does not possess more than 2.5 ounces of usable marijuana, and 12 marijuana plants kept in a locked facility. If the patient has designated a caregiver, the caregiver is the one who can possess marijuana plants. Seeds, stalks, and roots are also allowed, provided the person is lawfully able to cultivate marijuana.

Caregivers are allowed to possess up to 2.5 ounces of usable marijuana or 12 plants for each qualifying patient to which he or she is registered as a caregiver, as listed in the department’s registration records.

Whether you are a patient or a caregiver, if you are facing charges for possessing or cultivating marijuana without a license, or for possessing an amount in excess of what is allowed, contact Grabel & Associates now to fight back against conviction. Not only could you lose access to treatment, but you could face fines and possible jail time, along with a criminal record.

Criminal Penalties for Southfield Medical Marijuana Conviction

If a person does not have a valid registry card or possesses more than the allowed amount, marijuana possession charges can result. The penalties for marijuana possession are severe, and can lead to a year behind bars and a $2,000 fine for any amount. Possession with intent or cultivation of marijuana can lead to even more serious penalties, with fines in the millions of dollars possible for large amounts. Selling medical marijuana to someone who is not allowed to use marijuana for medicinal purposes will result in the revocation of the offender’s registry card, along with up to 2 years in prison, a $2,000 fine, and a felony record in addition to possible penalties for distribution of marijuana under state criminal law.
