The system and society make you out to be a depraved criminal when you are found in possession of a controlled substance. They don’t think twice about your life and what led to your arrest. You may have suffered an injury and were prescribed opioids for the pain, but then cut off by your doctor with no help getting off the drug. You may have grown up selling drugs to help your family, or you may have just needed to take the edge off. The Law Office of Calvert & Hubach considers all of these scenarios and provides representation without judgment.
What you should know about Marijuana legalization.
The legalization of Marijuana does not repeal every drug charge associated with it. The law stipulates that adults over the age of 21 may only possess up to one ounce of marijuana flower, or 1/8th of an ounce of marijuana concentrate.
The penalty for possession of over one ounce of marijuana is a felony and the potential penalty depends on the charge with which you are ultimately convicted. The potential charges for possession of over one ounce of marijuana that you may face are simple possession, possession for sale, transporting marijuana, and trafficking in marijuana.
In Nevada, marijuana is now defined as all parts of any plant of the genus Cannabis, whether growing or not, the seeds thereof, the resin extracted from any part of the plant, and every compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of the plant, its seeds, or resin.
Marijuana does not, however, include,
- Mature stems of the plant
- Fiber produced from the stems
- Oil or Cake made from the seeds of the plant
With heavily detailed stipulations on the legal use of marijuana (including the medical use of marijuana), it is best to consult with an attorney if charged with a crime relating to marijuana.
