Newport Beach Marijuana Crimes Attorney

Marijuana is an illegal drug under federal law and California state law does not currently allow for general recreational use. California law permits only medicinal marijuana use, and even someone with a small amount can be found guilty of an infraction. Depending on the severity of charge and the amount of the drug involved, you could face steeper penalties including harsh fines and potential jail time.

In order to maximize your chance of avoiding being charged with a drug crime, you need to obtain the services of a knowledgeable drug crimes lawyer. A Newport Beach marijuana attorney from the Law Offices of Scott D. Hughes can provide diligent representation to people facing drug crime charges.

The firm represents cases involving a variety of marijuana-related crimes, including:

  • Possession
  • Sale
  • Distribution
  • Trafficking
  • DUI charges
