Ohio votes TODAY on recreational Marijuana legalization


To all my clients with pending charges of possession of marijuana, the wave of legalization has been helping me get local cases dismissed. But it is still an uphill battle for you in Florida. Here’s one example of what’s going on around the country.

Ohio residents will decide Tuesday November 3, 2015, on whether to become the first Midwestern state to legalize personal and medical use of marijuana for those over 21 years old.

If it passes, Ohio would become the fifth, and largest, state to legalize the recreational use of marijuana, following Alaska, Colorado, Washington and Oregon, as well as the District of Columbia.

Keep an eye open for this announcement as Ohio would be the first Midwestern state to allow this and the associated industry that it brings.

In the meantime, if you caught with any amount of marijuana in Florida, you are still facing arrest, misdemeanor criminal charges, up to one year in jail and a mandatory one year drivers license suspension.

Although in some locations, police have relied on new county and local ordinances allowing enforcement of this law through civil fines, this is totally discretionary on the police officer and arrests continue to be made for this crime.

The courts are still punishing this offense so do not be caught in court without an attorney. My advice, keep your lawyers number on speed dial.

Increase your knowledge! If you want to know more about how to resolve the problems you face when charged with a criminal offense in Florida, then you can follow Miami Criminal Attorney Albert M. Quirantes on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.
