Marijuana is a commonly found drug that is used for both recreational and medicinal purposes. However, unless you qualify as a medical patient, possession of marijuana is a crime. Moreover, large amounts of marijuana in your possession may indicate to law enforcement that you have intent to sell or distribute these drugs, and you may find yourself facing more than a mere possession charge. If you are brought up on marijuana charges of any sort, possession, sales, or more, contact a Palm Springs criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
