Marijuana Defense Lawyer In Boise

Arrested for possession or sale of marijuana?

Some states have taken steps to legalize recreational use of marijuana, but in Idaho, marijuana is still an illegal drug. Being caught possessing, manufacturing or selling marijuana can lead to very severe penalties including:

  • prison or jail time
  • fines
  • mandatory drug awareness courses

A conviction can also alter the course of your future - a criminal drug crime could potentially follow you for the rest of your life. It is important that if you have been arrested you take immediate steps to protect your rights and freedoms.

At Bublitz Law, P.C. we offer quality representation to individuals facing marijuana crime charges. Our dedicated firm may be able to assist you in obtaining a favorable outcome for your case.

What are the penalties for marijuana-related crimes?

In Idaho, the penalties for a marijuana crime will vary depending on the amount of marijuana found on you or in your possession, as well as the intended use for the drug. If you were found with 3 ounces or less, with the intent of personal use, you could be charged with a misdemeanor and face up to one year in jail. From there, the penalties greatly increase and even 4 ounces of marijuana could be charged as a felony crime and you may be sentenced to five years in prison.

If it can be proven by prosecution that you had the intent to distribute the drug, you will automatically be charged with a felony offense and you could see thousands of dollars in fines. Prosecutors do not take these offenses lightly, and it is important that you immediately work with an attorney after an arrest.
