Criminal Charges for Marijuana in Oklahoma
Marijuana possession and trafficking remains a criminal offense for individuals who do not hold a valid patient, caregiver, educational, transport or commercial license for medical marijuana. Trafficking of cannabis grown outside the borders of Oklahoma state — including cannabis grown in Colorado — remains a criminal offense under Oklahoma law.
Moreover, under federal law, all cannabis, medical or recreational, is prohibited and possession or trafficking can result in federal criminal charges. A criminal defense attorney familiar with cannabis law or a federal criminal defense attorney can provide the informed, tenacious representation you need if you find yourself charged with drug crimes related to marijuana in Oklahoma.
Medical Marijuana Mistakes Can Result in Criminal Charges
For businesses engaged any industry, a mistake can cost money. For medical marijuana businesses and medical marijuana patients, a mistake may be a criminal offense. Consequences are can be extremely dire. For criminal cases your best defense can be a lawyer with criminal law experience.
There are defenses available in certain cannabis cases that are not otherwise available. For example, under some circumstances a person facing a criminal possession charge for marijuana may be eligible for a reduced fine should they simply “state a medical condition.” The law, drafted by marijuana advocates and adopted by voters rather than the legislature, is exceptionally broad. A lawyer experienced in Oklahoma marijuana law may be able to get you a better outcome than an ordinary defense attorney.
