"Marijuana" is defined as any Cannabis sativa plant, growing or not, including seeds or preparation of marijuana, or a package with marijuana traces. There must be a "usable" amount of marijuana. Thus, stems do not fall under the definition of marijuana. A court may order an officer to re-weigh the marijuana, which could reduce a felony charge to a misdemeanor. Request a free consultation with a marijuana attorney today by calling 512-457-5200

"Possession" means care, custody or control with actual knowledge of possession. A common defense to possession of marijuana is lack of actual knowledge. If you didn't know you possessed the marijuana, you are not guilty of marijuana possession. To discover the defenses in your case, call an experienced marijuana lawyer at (512) 457-5200 for a free consultation.
