Even though marijuana is one of the most commonly used substances throughout Michigan and it has been decriminalized for medical purposes, it can still result in serious criminal penalties. Possession, trafficking or cultivation of marijuana (also commonly known as pot, weed, bud, chronic, ganja and hydro) can result in jail or prison sentences, fines or surcharges, a denial from certain educational or job opportunities, and a criminal record.
If you have been charged with a marijuana crime in Michigan, it is important to remember that you will not necessarily be convicted of the offense. The prosecution is required to prove you committed every element of the marijuana offense beyond a reasonable doubt. This is a very high standard to meet. Any doubt in the mind of the jury or judge can result in a dismissal or reduction of the charges against you. Therefore, it is essential to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney in Michigan to help you create your best legal defense.
