Marijuana Possession/Distribution or Trafficking Crimes Defense Lawyer
In many other states, marijuana has been de-criminalized and made legal for personal use. However, the state of Alabama still aggressively pursues convictions for marijuana-related crimes. Just having possession of this drug can land you in jail. If you have larger amounts in your possession, you may be accused of the intent to distribute or sell the drug, which is a felony in Alabama. If you are charged with possession, distribution or trafficking of marijuana, contact experienced defense lawyer Dwayne L. Brown to help you fight for your future and freedom.
Even though marijuana is considered a less harmful or addictive drug, it is still illegal in Alabama. Jails and prisons in this state are full of people who were convicted of marijuana crimes. It is common for someone charged with marijuana possession to also face other charges that can “stack” and add to the penalties. Distribution or trafficking of marijuana is a felony and can result in many years in prison. It can give you a permanent label of “felon” that can cost your job and other opportunities in the future. Even if you think the evidence against you is too great, Dwayne L. Brown may be able to find ways to have the charges reduced, commuted or even dismissed.
