What Happens If I’m Convicted of a Marijuana Crime in Indiana?

In recent years, many states throughout the nation have legalized some form of medical or recreational cannabis. However, Indiana is not one of those states. Only CBD products with less than .03 percent of THC is legal.

Any amount less than 30 grams is a misdemeanor offense, while possessing at least 30 grams of marijuana is a felony. Sale or cultivation of pot, or even the possession or hash or concentrates, can result in harsher criminal penalties. Additionally, you can also be arrested for possessing marijuana paraphernalia, like a pipe or a bong.

You may not realize it, but there are dire consequences for your charges, other than jail or prison time and fines. Here are just a few:

  • A criminal record will always follow you, wherever you go

  • You may not be able to obtain employment or your employment options could be severely reduced

  • Your family life will always be affected

  • If you happen to get arrested again, even if you are arrested for a different crime, you will be considered a “repeat offender” and the penalties could/will increase drastically the second time around

The good news is there are programs you can enroll in that will help you get back on your feet and head in the right direction. An Indianapolis marijuana defense lawyer will know all about these programs and help you choose the most effective for your needs. Upon completion of such a program, you may even become eligible to have your criminal record completely cleared.

Marijuana Crime Defenses

You have a constitutional right to defend yourself from what could be considered as the overreaching armed government. Even if you are accused of committing a crime, Attorney Hayes will know and will be able to help to protect your rights.

Often a top Indiana marijuana defense attorney can use as the following defenses to possession of drug abuse and those possible defenses include:

  • Unlawful Search and Seizure

  • Drugs Belong to Another Person

  • Crime Lab Analysis

  • Missing Drugs

  • Drugs were Conspicuously Planted

  • Entrapment

  • Medical Marijuana Possession

If you become involved, either by knowingly potentially committing the crime of possession of marijuana or possession of marijuana or distribution or dealing the drug of marijuana by deception, please get help. The best time to hire an attorney is immediately after you’re arrested. Evidence can be lost very quickly by mishandling or neglect from law enforcement.
