While the recreational use of marijuana is legal in Washington State, it is still a carefully controlled substance — the new laws include strict limits. Private cultivation of the plants remains illegal, and public consumption is subject to a $100 fine. Possession of more than 1 ounce of marijuana is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 90 days in jail; for amounts greater than 40 grams, the penalty for possession is identical to those described above. Other laws apply for the use, cultivation and possession of medical marijuana.
Our goal is always to achieve the best possible result for our client, no matter the situation. We will work to uncover the full story of your situation.
