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. Many others, including Illinois, have established medical marijuana programs designed to help patients with specified health conditions. In Illinois, it is against the law for an individual to possess or use any amount marijuana without a state-issued medical registration card.

Legislation is currently being considered that would make low-level possession of marijuana—up to 10 grams—a civil offense rather than a criminal offense. If the measure becomes law, the penalties for minor possession would be similar to those associated with traffic tickets.

Until the law changes, however, possessing up to 2.5 grams is a Class C misdemeanor, and possessing up to 10 grams is a Class B misdemeanor. In either case, prison sentences are possible, along with fines of up to $1,500. If you have been charged with marijuana possession—especially if it is your first offense—our attorneys will work hard to help you avoid conviction and the associated penalties.

Felony Marijuana Possession Defense in Illinois

Possession of more than 10 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.

At Luisi Legal Group, we understand that many cases involving marijuana rely heavily on the evidence found by law enforcement. If the evidence was seized in a search that violated or compromised your rights in any way, we will do everything we can to have the charges against you dropped. 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.
