Medical Marijuana Defense Attorney
Avoid the Risk of Criminal Charges
In 1996, Florida law legalized the clinical use of marijuana. However, marijuana is still subject to a complex array of federal, state and county laws. Law enforcement authorities capitalize on this complexity by regularly cracking down on growers and property owners for technical violations. If you are involved in a cooperative, a collaborative or a dispensary, or you plan to be, it is imperative that you consult a qualified legal adviser with respect to these laws. Otherwise, you run the increased risk of facing criminal charges.
At the law office, I advise and represent people accused of crimes related to cannabis cultivation, as well as those interested in growing medical marijuana. I provide comprehensive guidance regarding:
- The risk of federal prosecution, since federal law does not recognize medical marijuana
- County codes that pertain to indoor and outdoor gardens
- Dispensary raids
- The rights and responsibilities of caregivers and patients
- Legal sale and possession of marijuana
Talk To Me Before You Grow Anything
The legalities of marijuana cultivation can be complicated, with overlapping and sometimes conflicting state, local and federal laws and unpredictable interplay between authorities from various jurisdictions. If you are interested in growing cannabis, being informed is critically important.
Even if you have not been arrested or investigated for marijuana crimes, I can help you avoid those problems. Many people get entangled in the law simply because they did not take the steps to understand the laws or prevent their application beforehand. Paying a little to get advice upfront is better than paying a lot to defend yourself from prosecution later. There is never a guarantee that law enforcement will not come after you, but being equipped with knowledge ahead of time can reduce that risk substantially.
