St. Louis Marijuana Charge Lawyer
Charged with possession, trafficking, or cultivation? Call us.
In Missouri, it is a misdemeanor crime to possess marijuana for personal use, unlike some other states that have provisions for the medical use of marijuana. It is also a felony offense to possess any amount of marijuana in excess of 35 grams. Any marijuana charge could lead to serious consequences if not addressed carefully by a powerful St. Louis drug crime defense attorney from our firm.
If you have been charged with possession or trafficking marijuana you already know you are in serious trouble. The legal team at Sumner Law Group, LLC is fully aware of the seriousness of these charges and we have dedicated a part of our legal practice to defending clients against all levels of marijuana charges. Convictions for simple possession can result in fines up to $1,000 dollars and up to 1 year in jail. Felony convictions for trafficking or manufacturing marijuana will usually include a long sentence in state prison, based upon the amount of marijuana found, whether processed or in a grow house, or even a number of plants that had been grown strictly for your own personal use. If convicted of possession with intent to distribute, you could face a 15 year jail sentence and a fine as high as $20,000.
