Marijuana Possession Defense Lawyers

The debate over marijuana has increased significantly in recent years, with several states making the decision to legalize marijuana possession and recreational use of the drug. Illinois is one of those states, and in addition to providing medical marijuana programs designed to help patients with specified health conditions, adults are allowed to possess certain amounts of marijuana for recreational use.

Since January 1, 2020, people over the age of 21 have been allowed to possess up to 30 grams of cannabis plants, five grams of cannabis concentrate, and products containing 500 milligrams of THC. However, possessing more than these allowed amounts may result in Class A misdemeanor charges, and a conviction may result in a prison sentences of up to one year and fines of up to $2,500. If you have been charged with marijuana possession—especially if it is your first offense—our Chicago marijuana possession lawyers will work hard to help you avoid conviction and the associated penalties.

Felony Marijuana Possession Defense in Illinois

Possession of more than 100 grams of marijuana is prosecutable as a felony under Illinois law, with the exact charges and penalties dependent upon the actual amount possessed. The case against you can be even more serious if you are accused of intent to deliver, manufacturing, or trafficking marijuana.

When necessary, we will negotiate with the police and prosecutors to find a reasonable solution to your case, often leading to a dismissal or reduction of charges and the resulting impact on your life.
