Definition of Marijuana and Possession

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 weed, 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 a lack of "actual knowledge." If you did not know you possessed the pot, 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.
