Marijuana Crimes Are Still Serious Offenses

When you are facing any kind of drug charge arising from situations involving marijuana, having qualified counsel on your side can make a substantial difference. It is even more of a benefit to have a defense lawyer who also has extensive experience as a prosecutor because this knowledge can help inform strategy, negotiation and trial advocacy.

At Lynch & Pine, based in Providence, our attorneys have handled hundreds of drug cases as prosecutors, including time spent serving in the Narcotics and Organized Crime Unit, and we now use the skills we developed in the Attorney General's office to help people accused of marijuana drug crimes. We understand that many charges are against young people and others who were not doing their best thinking at the time of arrest. We are here to help prevent jail time and other consequences.

Our Rhode Island marijuana possession defense attorneys handle cases involving the following charges:

  • Possession
  • Intent to sell
  • Operating marijuana grow houses
  • Drug trafficking
  • Driving under the influence of narcotics

Our attorneys approach drugs cases from an analytical perspective, examining the case against clients for error and faulty procedure used by law enforcement. We will argue your case with intelligence and with commitment to your rights. Our goals are always to minimize the consequences you are facing and to protect your future with diligence and skill.

Possession of Medical Marijuana Is A Valid Defense In Some Cases

In some cases, even though you or your loved one possesses a medical marijuana card, the state may charge you with a drug offense. Whether the person charged is a patient or a caregiver, our lawyers understand the intricacies of the marijuana law and statutes decriminalizing medical marijuana. Don't miss out on this valid defense by not having competent counsel on your side.

We fight for the people of Rhode Island. If you have been charged with a drug-related crime, call 401-680-0921 or email our drug crime defense lawyers in Providence to learn about your options.
