As a leading Drug Attorney in Indiana, Potts Law LLC. helps clients navigate drug arrests amidst the growing discrepancy of marijuana laws from state to state. While more states are legalizing the possession and distribution of marijuana across the country, Indiana is not one of them. If you’ve been arrested for growing and/or dealing marijuana in Indiana, there are some things you should know.
Indiana Marijuana Statutes
Indiana Code 35-48-4-10 and Indiana Code 35-48-4-11 are the statutes that relate to the charges for which you should be represented by an Indiana Drug Attorney. The first charge is a Class A misdemeanor and the second is a Class B Misdemeanor, unless you have previous charges, in which case these could potentially go up to felony charges. It is important to note that the amount of marijuana, both in your physical possession, as well what’s growing on your property, are also taken into consideration. This is important because the weight of an entire plant is allowed to be included.
For instance, if you have a prior drug-related offense, and you have one plant that weighs more than 30 grams, you may not be looking at a felony. If you are a CBD retailer selling products that contain THC, then you are also breaking the law and will need a good Drug Attorney in Indiana. Unless marijuana becomes legal in the state of Indiana, you can be charged with a crime that results in fines, jail time and potential felony charges that can impact your future ability to find employment and housing.
If you’ve been arrested for possession of marijuana, growing marijuana, dealing or the intent to distribute and sell marijuana illegally, you need a good Indiana Drug Attorney with experience who can represent you well. Contact Potts Law at (317) 951-0087 or fill out the online contact form.
