Oregon Medical Marijuana Act Lawyers
In Oregon, the possession, use, cultivation and delivery of medical marijuana is legal according to the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act (OMMA). However, this act clearly dictates details concerning amounts that patients can own and number of plants that can be grown. It can be complex process to determine if a client is in compliance with the law, and many people who legitimately use or cultivate marijuana find themselves facing marijuana charges because they did not follow the law exactly or neglected to get the proper authorization. The Oregon Medical Marijuana Act provides a defense to people who have not registered under the act, but it too is complex and confusing.
At Kohlmetz, Steen & Hanrahan, P.C., our attorneys have decades of experience defending people against medical marijuana related charges, such as:
- Marijuana possession
- Marijuana Possession with intent
- Marijuana distribution
- Marijuana cultivation
Marijuana Possession and Cultivation Defense
Oregon allows people, called "patients" to possess a certain amount of marijuana and use it medicinally. The state also allows patients to grow marijuana for themselves. "Caregivers" are allowed to grow marijuana and distribute it to patients.
If a person is charged with marijuana possession or cultivation in relation to medical marijuana, our attorneys will move quickly to determine where the misstep was made. We will do what is necessary to correct it to prevent criminal charges going forward, while also taking the necessary steps to work with prosecutors and fight the current charges.
