Portland Marijuana Possession Lawyer

If you have been charged with illegal possession of marijuana, there are many details of your case that should be reviewed by the lawyer you choose to handle your case. Medical marijuana laws in Oregon add to the complexity of these marijuana possession cases. While it is legal for individuals to be in possession of a certain amount of marijuana with a permit, exceeding that amount can lead to criminal charges.

I am attorney David J. Celuch. If you have been charged with delivery or possession of marijuana, I will thoroughly investigate your charges, review the specifications of your permit, determine how much marijuana or how many marijuana plants you were permitted to possess, and determine if illegal search and seizure is an issue in your case. I will take a creative approach to identify all possible defense options in your case. Contact a Portland marijuana possession defense attorney to learn more.

Penalties and Defense Options

Illegal possession of marijuana is a Class D felony in Oregon that can result in penalties that include up to 10 years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines. The penalties for delivery of marijuana are even greater than that. If you have been charged with either crime, it is critical to talk to an experienced marijuana possession defense attorney as soon as possible. There are steps that I can take early in your case that may help you avoid the negative penalties associated with a conviction, or to avoid a conviction altogether.
