Eugene Marijuana Possession Defense Lawyers
As common as marijuana is, it is not surprising that so many people find themselves facing federal marijuana charges. What is surprising to some people is how serious these charges are and how severe the penalties can be if a person is convicted.
In federal marijuana possession and distribution cases, sentences are primarily dictated by the amount of the actual marijuana possessed or distributed. Of course, the more that is involved, the more severe the penalties can be. In marijuana cultivation cases however, the potential sentence is driven by the number of plants involved. Another complicating factor in these cases is that Federal law does not recognize the validity of medical marijuana or the legal provisions of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act. In many federal marijuana cases, the penalties go beyond fines, or probation, and include tough prison sentences. A tough, aggressive and experienced attorney can fight to prevent these sentences.

Recreational Marijuana and Medical Marijuana
In Oregon, medical marijuana is legal. It can be used and it can be grown according to the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act (OMMA). However, there are no federal laws making the use of medical marijuana legal. As a result of the federal court's refusal to recognize medical marijuana, grow operations operating on the basis of state laws often find themselves on the wrong side of serious federal charges. Our attorneys are skilled at handling federal cases that involve interplay with state-sanctioned medical marijuana laws.
