With the rise of medical marijuana has come a rise in arrests for possession and use of marijuana for those who are not registered patients or caregivers.

In Michigan, possession of marijuana is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail, a $2,000 fine, or both. Marijuana use is also a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 90 days in jail, a $100 fine, or both. A marijuana possession or use conviction will also result in a suspension of your driver's license, even if you were not driving at the time. Different cities and townships in Michigan may prosecute similar ordinances with different potential punishments. This is why it is important to hire a skilled and experienced criminal defense attorney.
