Types of Drug Crimes
It is illegal to possess, manufacture, distribute or sell controlled substances for yourself or others. Possession crimes tend to garner the lowest punishments, whereas the manufacture and sale of controlled substances are almost always punishable by felonies and prison sentences. Sentencing also depends on several other factors, including your previous criminal record, whether or not you acted within one thousand feet of a school, and if minors were involved.

You must follow all of the rules, however, such as only purchasing from a valid dispensary and not furnishing marijuana to minors. If you have been charged with a marijuana related crime, such as DUII or illegal possession, we can help.
