What Are the Penalties for Breaking Michigan’s Marijuana Laws?
You may face criminal sanctions for growing, distributing, possessing, or using marijuana, any of its derivatives, and even synthetic compounds that purportedly mimic the effects of marijuana. Even if you think you are in full compliance with Michigan’s marijuana regulations, you may still find yourself on the wrong side of the state law. Worse, you might face charges at the federal level.

- Time behind bars
- Fines ranging from hundreds, to thousands, and in some cases millions of dollars
- Revoked driving privileges
- Loss of your job
- A permanent criminal record that can keep you from getting a new job or a pursuing your education
- Limited second amendment rights

How Can A Flint Marijuana Lawyer at Davis Law Group PLLC Help?
As a former prosecutor, Attorney Maurice Davis has the first-hand experience in how prosecutors build their cases against drug crime suspects. This gives him an upper hand in defending against these very same cases. At Davis Law Group, we have experience handling cases involving the following kinds of Flint marijuana charges:
- Use of Marijuana — A conviction for marijuana use by someone under 21 can result in harsh penalties and fines.
- Possession of Marijuana — As a more serious misdemeanor offense than simple use, the possession of large amounts of marijuana can result in harsh penalties.
- Marijuana Cultivation, Sale, and Possession with Intent — Depending on the amount of marijuana at issue in the case, a conviction may result in decades behind bars and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. You may also find yourself facing marijuana charges in federal court, where the cost of litigation and the possible penalties are even more significant.

If you or a member of your family is facing marijuana charges, the Flint marijuana lawyers at Davis Law Group can help bring your case to a positive resolution. When we take on your case, we will first determine whether the authorities abused their power in collecting evidence against you. If so, we will ask the court to remove that evidence form your case by filing a motion to suppress. Without evidence to prove your guilt, the prosecutor may be forced to drop the charges.
If your case goes to trial, we will leave no stone unturned in defending your case. The prosecutor must prove every element of the charges against you beyond a reasonable doubt. By highlighting the gaps and inconsistencies in the prosecutor’s case, we may be able to show to the jury that there is a reasonable possibility that you are innocent.
At every stage of the criminal justice process, you can count on our attention to detail and dedication to aggressive and effective advocacy. If you have not yet been charged, but know you are under investigation, now is the perfect time to hire a lawyer. The sooner we begin preparing the defense of your case, the higher your chances of avoiding a conviction.
