The use of marijuana is not a new concept. Humans have consumed it in some form or another for over five millennia, and nearly half of the population of the United States has tried it. While other states have legalized or decriminalized marijuana, it remains illegal under Ohio state law.
Possession, manufacturing, cultivation, distribution, and transportation of marijuana will be relentlessly pursued by law enforcement. Where they can find an offender, arrest and charges will follow.
If you have been charged with a marijuana-related offense, call Joslyn Law Firm right away. We understand that you a human being, not a statistic, and deserve to be treated as such. We have several avenues of defense against marijuana charges, including violations of the US Constitution’s Fourth Amendment (unlawful searches), failure of arresting officers to give Miranda warnings, and insufficient evidence to support the elements of the cause.
Getting caught with marijuana carries serious consequences. You may be hit with large fines, be sentenced to jail or prison time, have to perform community service, regular or random drug testing, you may lose your voting rights, and incur a license suspension. Even the smallest penalty contains more consequences than the initial fine – you could be denied future housing or job opportunities, lose custody of a child, and more.
