Kalamazoo Marijuana Possession Defense Lawyer

Michigan Drug Defense | Marijuana

Have you been charged with possessing, using, growing or selling marijuana? If you answered yes to any of these options, you should seek professional legal counsel from Kalamazoo marijuana charge attorney Gary Tibble as soon as possible.

Because Michigan currently outlaws the possession, use, sale and cultivation of marijuana by recreational users, you could be facing serious penalties if convicted, including fines and court fees, community service, prison time and a permanent criminal record.

Only recently has the state legalized medical marijuana that must be prescribed by a physician solely for the use of pain relief, nausea, movement disorders and other ailments. Michigan residents using medical marijuana must have applied to the Michigan Medical Marijuana Program.
