Plan a marijuana charge defense carefully and early
When you are facing marijuana charges, you might be tempted to put off thinking about your defense strategy. This is a difficult position to be in these days because the views on marijuana are changing quite rapidly — although not in all states. The fact is that all criminal charges should be treated seriously and given the attention they deserve so that you aren't left with a flimsy defense when you go before the court.
Some people think that marijuana matters in Oklahoma will be less serious because of the medical marijuana laws here, but this isn't the case. Anyone who can't legally possess medical marijuana can face criminal charges if they have weed on them at all. Even people who can possess medical marijuana may end up being arrested if they aren't in full compliance with the current laws.
The defense that you use for a marijuana charge has to be based on the facts of the case. We will work with you to determine what options you have for your defense strategy. Try not to focus on what defense might have worked for someone you know. Since every case is different, trying to shoehorn your defense into what worked for that person can be devastating.
We realize that this is a trying time for you. We are here to ensure that your rights are being respected and that you know what options you have. Just be sure not to wait until the last minute because a rushed defense isn't likely going to get the case resolved in the same manner as a well-planned one.
