Michigan Drug Lawyer
You have been arrested for or have been implicated in an investigation regarding the cultivation of illegal drugs. By contacting a Michigan criminal defense attorney at the Freedman Law Group, you can learn more about your options in fighting these charges.
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.
