Marijuana Cultivation Attorney
Cultivation of marijuana can take various forms, but it involves the growing of cannabis plants for clinical, recreational or commercial purposes. In the state of Florida, cannabis can be cultivated legally under certain circumstances, all related to medical use under legislation known as Proposition 215, or “Prop. 215.” Nevertheless, many growers, caregivers and patients are charged with crimes related to cultivation. Prosecutors often press felony charges that can lead to time in state prison, seizure of land and other property, large fines and other penalties.
Since a complex array of federal, state and county laws applies to the growing of marijuana, it is extremely important to seek qualified legal advice if you are facing criminal charges. By the same token, if you want to avoid prosecution with regard to the growing of medical marijuana, make sure you talk to an attorney with an in-depth knowledge of marijuana law before you grow anything.
