If you are charged with a first offense of possession of marijuana in Michigan, this article explains what you can expect.
In Michigan marijuana is both legal and illegal. The Michigan voters decided that marijuana should be legal for medicinal use. However, the law has not quite changed to make it legal for recreational use. Until then, even possession of the smallest amount of marijuana, without a legal right to do so, can lead to criminal charges. A possession of marijuana conviction can have long-lasting effects on financial aid for college, a driver’s license, employment, elimination nursing programs, etc.
Since a possession of marijuana conviction can have long-lasting effects on your life it is important to have an experienced criminal defense attorney to guide you through the legal process. The attorney may be able to keep the criminal off of your criminal history and driving record.
