Maryland Marijuana Possession: A Highly Prosecuted Crime
In Maryland, possessing even small amounts of marijuana is illegal and punishable by fine and jail time. Penalties for a conviction correspond to the amount of marijuana in your possession — the more drugs found, the steeper the punishment. In addition to fines and imprisonment, a drug crime conviction will also leave a permanent mark on your record.
Fighting Your Marijuana Possession Charges
At Cohen, Snyder, Eisenberg & Katzenberg, P.A., our attorneys have decades of combined experience. Erin Snyder, Esq., is a former prosecutor. Her experience working for the other side serves our clients well. We know the steps the prosecution will take to “prove” your guilt, and we build strong defenses that break the government’s case apart.
Our firm will investigate the circumstances of your arrest. Was the stop legal? Did police officers have probable cause to search you? Were you given your Miranda rights? Were the interrogation techniques legal? If we find any sign that your constitutional rights were violated, we will fight to have evidence withheld and charges dropped.
