Oakland County Drug Cultivation Attorney

Have you been charged with cultivation of marijuana?

Drug cultivation charges generally refer to the growing of marijuana. Cultivation of this drug, generally done in "grow" houses, is both a state and federal crime in Michigan. While marijuana possession laws are generally forgiving in the state, severe penalties are imposed on those who violate cultivation laws. If you are found growing marijuana without written authorization from a physician, you will be subject to these laws. Getting experienced legal help immediately upon an arrest or if you suspect you are being investigated is imperative if you wish to obtain the best possible case outcome. Daniel D.

Cultivation Laws in Michigan

Your drug charges in a cultivation case will be based on the amount of marijuana found upon your arrest. Cultivation of any amount or kind in the state will lead to a felony charge punishable by up to four years in prison and a fine of up to $20,000. Cultivation of more than 20 plants is punishably by up to seven years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000. Cultivation of more than 200 plants will be charged as a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000,000.

Selling marijuana is also a crime that carries the same punishments as cultivation. These punishments are imposed, however, based on the amount of marijuana involved in the sales. Less than five kilograms imposes the four years / $20,000 fine penalties. Sales of five up to 45 kilograms carry the seven years / $500,000 penalties and sales of more than 45 kilograms carry the heaviest penalties.
