Scranton Medical Marijuana Attorney
As of 2009, Pennsylvania has not legalized medical
marijuana. However, many people have been gathering in an attempt to have a bill
signed by the legislative to legalize the use of medical marijuana. Research
has shown that marijuana is said to help ease the pain of individuals
suffering from terminal illnesses and diseases such as HIV/Aids, cancer
and multiple sclerosis (MS). Currently, the only way for people in North
Pennsylvania to obtain medical marijuana is to move to a state that has
made medical marijuana legal, or buy from criminals.
Sadly, many people who use medical marijuana are deemed to be criminals
by law enforcement. This paves the way for many ill individuals to be
placed under arrest for
under the influence and
possession charges. This would mean that depending upon the amount of marijuana a
person has in their possession, they can face a long term jail or prison
sentence, fines, restitution, community service, license suspension, probation
and parole. A person convicted would also receive a permanent mark on
his or her criminal record.
If you or a loved one is under investigation or has been formally charged
for a crime involving medical marijuana in Scranton, Wilkes-Barre or North
Pennsylvania, it is extremely important that you contact a Scranton medical
marijuana lawyer at the Rogan Law Firm. We feel that it is time that law
