Manhattan Criminal Lawyer Discusses Medical Marijuana
As an experienced Manhattan Criminal Lawyer, clients often ask about medical marijuana possession. New York is one of those states that does have medical marijuana, but it does not legalize the possession or use of marijuana. Even if you did have a medical marijuana card, you would not be permitted to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence. There are certain circumstances where people are permitted to get medical marijuana as long as they do have a physician’s consent and prescription and it is issued by a dispensary.
However, medical marijuana is not otherwise legal to anybody else, so if you’re charged with possession of marijuana and you have a marijuana card – in other words you’re permitted to carry or use – contact me and we’ll go over the circumstances of your case.
