Medical Marijuana Charges
Tallahassee Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer
The federal government is responsible for regulating drugs through the Controlled Substances Act, which does not recognize the difference between the medical use of marijuana and the recreational use of marijuana. Consequently, individuals who possess, cultivate, or distribute large quantities of marijuana for medical purposes can be charged with a federal offense. Federal law classifies marijuana as a Schedule I drug, which means that marijuana violations are treated the same as violations involving other illegal controlled substances like cocaine or heroin.
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) enforces federal drug laws and handles marijuana patients and care givers as well as large cultivation and distribution operations involving medical marijuana. They take medical marijuana violations very seriously and seek to prosecute those who violate federal medical marijuana laws to the fullest extent of the law. If you or someone you love has been arrested for the cultivation or distribution of medical marijuana, you need an experienced Tallahassee federal criminal defense attorney to handle your case.
