Charges for the distribution of marijuana may even be brought against a medical marijuana patient. If an individual who is a patient shares medical marijuana with another person, who is not a patient, without following the guidelines of the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act (MMMA), he or she can be charged with a felony.
Once convicted, an individual could spend up to 2 years in prison and be forced to pay fines up to $2,000. In addition, the patient’s registry identification card for medical marijuana will be revoked. The charges are more severe when money exchanges hands for the distribution of marijuana. The penalties a person may face range from 4 to 15 years in jail. Call us today if you are facing charges related to the distribution of marijuana.
