Charged With Marijuana Cultivation Or Sales?

Selling and growing weed are felony offenses in Minnesota. Depending on the amount of pot involved, you may be facing anywhere from five years to 30 years in prison and max fines ranging from $10,000 to one million dollars. Importing marijuana into the state and distributing marijuana in a school zone are also felony offenses and bring steep penalties.

It is a crime to possess 42.5 grams (or an ounce and a half) or more of marijuana, even if only for personal use. Depending on the amount of pot involved, you may be facing anywhere from six months to 40 years in prison and fines up to $100,000. It can also be illegal to possess, use or sell drug paraphernalia.

In addition to jail time and fines, a marijuana conviction can permanently mark your criminal record and may make it difficult to obtain employment. Convictions for felony-level charges can strip you of your civil right to vote or possess a firearm.

At the Thole Law Firm, attorney Thole examines the facts to determine whether our clients’ constitutional rights were violated. If the police illegally searched or seized you, or failed to provide adequate Miranda warnings, he can work to have evidence thrown out and your case dismissed.
