“I was employed at a state corrections facility. When I got charged with Felonious Assault and Kidnapping, my job put me on unpaid leave. Greg Robey fought hard for me and the State agreed to dismiss all the felony charges against me. I am now back on the job because of the hard work of Mr. Robey.” -T.J., Cleveland, Ohio
Those charged with medical marijuana possession, distribution, and trafficking, and breakage of other laws related to illicit substances need the help and support of drug crime lawyers and other individuals who believe in their cause. As it is today, a medical marijuana distribution or trafficking charge and arrest can lead to felony penalties.
Fortunately, there are organizations that are deeply committed to changing marijuana law in Ohio. One such organization, created by medical marijuana activists, is the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) in Cleveland. A non-profit, nonpartisan organization, NORML in Cleveland works to educate the public about the benefits of marijuana and the reasons why it should be legalized, both for medicinal and non-medicinal purposes.
The Cleveland NORML attorneys at the Law Office of Gregory S. Robey believe in the message of this organization. They know that their clients need special support, given the limitations of marijuana law in Ohio. This applies to both medical and non-medical use of marijuana.
If medical marijuana users are charged with breaking the law, it is imperative that they work with Cleveland NORML attorneys. The lawyers at the Law Office of Gregory S. Robey provide a vigorous medical marijuana defense in Cleveland.
NORML lawyers are necessary for all other marijuana users, as well. Ohio has a specific law called DUID, or Driving Under the Influence of Drugs. In accordance with this law, drivers who use marijuana can be subject to serious penalties. Although it does not always happen, a person may face a criminal drug charge for driving after having used marijuana.
The DUID law applies to those who get behind the wheel with any detectable amounts of THC (a chemical component of marijuana) present in their bloodstream. A conviction means a substance abuse program or a three-day mandatory jail sentence, in addition to an automatic driver’s license suspension. Those involved in the use of marijuana have limited rights under current Ohio laws. The defense of those rights is the reason the Cleveland criminal attorneys at the Law Office of Gregory S. Robey provide only the best NORML lawyers to help clients with marijuana offenses.
