      Maryland Marijuana Defense Attorneys

      With Law Offices in BowieWaldorfFrederickLexington Park, and Rockville

      In Maryland, drug crimes are strictly prosecuted and often severely punished. Marijuana, or cannabis, is the most widely abused drug in both the U.S. and the world as a whole. Because of the recent changes in many states concerning medical marijuana use, law enforcement has cracked down on illegitimate users. Today, medical marijuana is legal in Maryland for qualifying patients. Individuals who are not licensed to use medical marijuana can be punished for possessing or using the drug. The most common marijuana offense committed is marijuana possession and though it does not seem serious, it can, in fact, carry stiff drug penalties under certain circumstances.

      Penalties for Marijuana Crimes

      As of 2019, Maryland has decriminalized possession of less than 10 grams of marijuana. If you are caught in possession of less than 10 grams, you will face only a civil penalty with a relatively small fine. However, a person who is found guilty of possessing more than 10 grams of marijuana can be charged with a misdemeanor and be sentenced to a maximum imprisonment of one year and/or a maximum fine of $1,000. On top of that, if you are found guilty of marijuana possession with intent to distribute, the penalties can be much more severe.

      Get the Aggressive Representation You Need

      The penalties for drug crimes in Maryland may vary slightly depending on the crime, but many involve a felony charge with a prison sentence and a hefty fine. Just because the drug is marijuana does not mean a prosecutor will go easy on you. Unless you fall under the small percentage of residents that can claim medical use as a defense, you are going to need to protect your legal rights and fight against excessive penalties. If you have been charged with a marijuana crime, you deserve skilled legal representation. At Alpert Schreyer, our marijuana defense lawyers in Maryland can build a strong defense on your behalf.

      stars

      The attorney’s and paralegals are incredible. They are truly committed to understanding your case and serving you. However, I’ve personally worked with Mr. Berman and Mrs. Bowman through my entire process! I am so grateful for their passion, dedication, and professionalism. I haven’t worked with many attorney’s in the past, but I’m glad you all were recommended to me. You all are truly the best. Thank you so much!
