Drug cultivation is an offense related to marijuana, wherein the offender
grows or tends to marijuana or cannabis plants. Michigan law is particularly
harsh on those accused of drug cultivation. If you are found to own even
one marijuana plant, you may face felony charges and up to four years
in prison. Increased penalties may apply if the offender is shown to have
been cultivating marijuana for distribution rather than solely for personal
use. The number of plants or seedlings may also affect potential sentencing.
Medical Marijuana & Drug Cultivation
Drug cultivation charges can become complex, particularly due to the fact that
medical marijuana is legal under Michigan state law. As such, a legal growing operation
may be targeted by state or Federal law enforcement, and this may lead
to criminal charges even when the alleged offender was growing marijuana
for valid medical distribution. Marijuana is not legal under Federal law,
and this makes matters even more complex.

drug crime attorney at your side to help you fight your marijuana cultivation charges. At
