Accused of Misusing Medical Marijuana?
While the use of medical marijuana was recently legalized in Michigan, there are a wide range of limitations involved for users.
If you have been accused of exceeding those limitations, you could face drug charges. Even though the marijuana was being used for medicinal purposes, the penalties are still very serious. Although federal charges are unlikely, it is still a federal crime to use marijuana for medicinal purposes.

Potential Medicinal Marijuana Charges
There are many ways in which a person can be charged with a drug crime involving medical marijuana:
- A person can be charged with growing and cultivation if they have exceeded the number of plants they are authorized to grow.
- A person can be charged with drug possession if they are transporting someone else’s prescribed medical marijuana to them.
- A person can face drug charges if they are using medical marijuana in an unauthorized location.
In fact, there are so many limitations on the use of medical marijuana that people can find themselves facing drug charges in a surprising number of situations.
Fighting these charges is not as simple as showing your prescription. It takes more work than that, work that an experienced criminal defense lawyer can do.
