Marijuana Offenses in Central New York
Marijuana is one controlled substance that has had its status changed dramatically in the State of New York over the last few years. It is no longer considered a serious narcotic and simple possession is often treated as an infraction (like a speeding or parking ticket).
However, possession of large quantities of marijuana and the cultivation of the marijuana plant is highly regulated and still often results in criminal charges. If you or a loved one have been arrested on a marijuana charge, we invite you to contact our offices today.
