Medical Marijuana Card Holder Charged With Possession Sees Dismissal

On Behalf of | Jul 11, 2016 | Case Results, Criminal Defense, Drug Charge, Firm News

In Isabella County, a man in his early 20’s recently found himself in a tough situation after police entered his residence while he was not at home. Apparently, a roommate allowed the officers to search the common areas, where they found marijuana wax belonging to the man in question. The man was, in fact, a medical marijuana card holder; however, since he was not present at the time, he did not have the opportunity to provide the necessary documentation and was subsequently charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession. The man knew that if he did not handle this charge effectively, he ran the risk of a superfluous drug conviction tarnishing his record and limiting future employment and educational opportunities. For these reasons, he contacted the skilled Michigan medical marijuana defense lawyers with DeBruin Law, PLLC.

Attorney Tiffany DeBruin represented her client and used her considerable experience in medical marijuana cases to negotiate with the prosecution. In the end, attorney DeBruin argued that her client was protected under Section 4 of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act and the charge was unwarranted. This resulted in the complete dismissal of the young man’s marijuana possession charge and he was excused from further legal concern.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
