Less Federal Prosecution for Medical Marijuana Users

The federal government has issued a memo telling prosecutors not to prosecute medical marijuana users who follow their state’s laws. Washington, Oregon, Nevada, California, Alaska, Hawaii, Michigan, Vermont, Maine, and Rhode Island are all states that allow marijuana use and growing for people with prescriptions. New Hampshire and Delaware are considering relaxing their pot laws as well. Even though these states allow pot use for medical reasons, the United States government still considers it illegal activity and can arrest these people on federal drug charges.

In Florida, it is against the law to possess, grow, and sell pot. Even though it is a non-violent crime, people are sent to prison because of this plant. If you are arrested on pot charges in Jacksonville, contact a Jacksonville Pot Attorney to discuss your rights.
