Understand Marijuana Laws in Michigan

Because of my history as a prosecutor, I also have a unique view into the way prosecutors and judges operate. I am equipped to anticipate the arguments that may be used against you. My goal is to minimize the penalties my clients face or to have their charges dropped altogether.

When you call me at (734) 201-0303, you are taking the first step to protecting your rights and future.

The Ins & Outs of Marijuana Crimes

Marijuana laws across the U.S. are everchanging. Recently, in 2018, Michigan legalized the recreational use of marijuana. Though recreational marijuana is still illegal under federal law, the people of Michigan who are 21 and older are legally allowed to consume and possess marijuana – but they may not purchase or sell it without a valid medical marijuana card.

Currently, the legal limit for possession is 2.5 ounces on your person and 10 ounces in your home. Marijuana consumption must remain on private property – it is illegal to consume in public. Michiganites can still be charged with marijuana sale, trafficking, or possession with intent to sell.

The consequences of being convicted of a marijuana-related offense in Michigan depend heavily on the circumstances.

The penalties you could face include:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Permanent criminal record
  • Revocation of your license
