Defending Marijuana Crimes in Utah
Marijuana (also known as weed, pot, or cannabis) is one of the most widely used illicit substances in the United States. Despite the fact that it has been legalized for medical and recreational purposes in neighboring Colorado, the State of Utah still has some of the harshest laws prohibiting the possession of marijuana in the country.
The consequences for any of the following criminal offenses involving marijuana can be particularly harsh, including significant fines, jail time, or community service. In fact, any conviction for possession of marijuana or possession of drug paraphernalia may result in a 6 month driver’s license suspension.
Common misdemeanor and criminal offenses include:
- Marijuana Possession
- Possession Of Marijuana With Intent To Distribute
- Cultivation Of Marijuana
- Possession Of Marijuana Paraphernalia;
- Manufacture Of Marijuana; And
- Sale Or Distribution Of Marijuana.
Never has the debate around legalizing marijuana gained so much attention. Despite the debate, Utah’s current laws are clear. You can go to jail or be supervised on probation for the possession of even a small amount of marijuana. These penalties can have strong effects on certain professions, professional licenses, and academic standings. Even if you are facing a misdemeanor marijuana offense, an experienced criminal defense attorney would be an asset to have on your side.
