Portland Marijuana Defense Attorney

Oregon Pot Defense Lawyers

Although marijuana is still illegal under most circumstances in Oregon, marijuana charges have earned a reputation as being "less serious" than other drugs. In spite of this, penalties for marijuana delivery, cultivation or manufacture are often still very serious. Growing, cultivating or manufacturing marijuana is a Class A felony under Oregon law. Unlawful delivery of marijuana can range from a Class A felony all the way down to a Class A misdemeanor depending on the circumstances of the offense. Similarly, unlawful possession of marijuana can be a class B felony, a class C misdemeanor or a noncriminal violation depending on the circumstances. If you have been charged with any kind of marijuana offense, you need a dedicated defense lawyer on your side.

The Portland law firm of Kohlmetz, Steen & Hanrahan, P.C., defends individuals throughout Oregon against all types of drug charges at the state and federal level. Our firm consists of four lawyers, each of whom has at least a decade of experience in criminal defense.

Our attorneys will look closely at every defense. In many marijuana cases, particularly charges of delivery or possession, your penalties hinge on the amount of marijuana you have been charged with delivering or possessing. If you are convicted of possessing less than an ounce of marijuana, the penalties are reduced significantly. When necessary, our law firm can independently test the drugs in question to determine the weight of the drugs. Additionally, some marijuana-related felony convictions may later be subject to expunction so that you can ultimately clear your record.

The Oregon Medical Marijuana Act (OMMA) allows the use and cultivation of marijuana plants under certain circumstances. If you are a patient or a caregiver and are in trouble with the law for using or growing medical marijuana, we can help you demonstrate that you are in compliance with the law.

Of course our lawyers will look closely at issues of search and seizure to see whether the police upheld your Constitutional rights. Whatever the exact circumstances of your case, our lawyers will work hard to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
