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
- 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.

When you work with Bublitz Law, P.C. we will immediately begin to investigate
your case and ensure that your rights were not infringed upon during your

to search your property or persons was illegal and therefore null and void.
