Possession of marijuana is legal now in the State of Washington. So go ahead and light up without any worries, right? Wrong. The right to smoke marijuana has severe limitations including where you smoke it, how much you have, and how old you are. There are still very serious criminal charges that can arise from marijuana at the local level as well as the threat of being charged with federal drug crimes.
If your future is being threatened by a marijuana-related charge, it is in your best interest to have an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side.
