Is Marijuana Legal In Wisconsin?

Potential Penalties And Your Defense Options

Drug charges of any kind can lead to serious penalties that may affect various areas of your life. A strong defense is the key to protecting your future interests. My experience in various types of drug cases and close knowledge of the law allow me to provide you with a specifically tailored defense strategy against any of the three main types of marijuana offenses in Wisconsin. These include:

  • Possession
  • Sale
  • Trafficking

It is against the law to bring marijuana into the state, even if purchased legally somewhere else. A conviction is serious — even minor possession of marijuana can lead to steep fines and time behind bars. Additionally, having a medical marijuana card in your name will not be enough to avoid criminal charges if caught with this type of controlled substance. In many cases, drug law violations are the result of confusion over differing medical cannabis laws from state to state.

I am a defense lawyer who approaches each case seriously. I will put forth every effort to defend you against any charges, minimize the negative impact of any potential consequences and fight to help you avoid a conviction.
