Arrested for Public Use of Marijuana
If you – either alone or with another individual – were smoking a joint while walking down a street or alleyway in the state of New York and have been charged with possession of marijuana, you may be entitled to an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal. Although certain states have decriminalized marijuana and certain states have legalized marijuana, let’s make the record clear right now. New York has legalized marijuana – but only for those who have a legalization card allowing them to possess marijuana because of a specific medical condition. For the rest of us, it’s still an offense under the law. If you’ve been charged with either 221.05 or 221.10 of the Penal Law, criminal possession of marijuana, give me a call and let’s discuss your case. We’ll resolve it quickly, cost-effectively, and with the least possible stress.
