Marijuana Charges

Have you been arrested on marijuana charges?

At Dhar Law, LLP we will fight for your rights after a marijuana-related criminal charge. Make sure your rights are protected.


Dhar Law, LLP is proud to fight for the rights of those accused of marijuana crimes in the Boston area.

If you have been arrested for marijuana possession, illegal use of marijuana or marijuana trafficking, you should speak to a Boston criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Massachusetts law on marijuana can be confusing. You may not know that it is prohibited to possess more than an ounce of marijuana on your person. Being caught with marijuana, even if it was intended for personal use, can lead to being charged with intent to distribute. You can also be arrested for marijuana trafficking and other offenses. Convictions can involve the loss of driver’s license, jail time and fines, and result in social stigma, loss of college funding and negative impact on job prospects. Don’t let the consequences of a drug conviction derail your life. Speak to a marijuana defense attorney at Dhar Law today.


Penalties for Marijuana Offenses

Up to 15 years for intent to distribute and distribution and/or fines of up to 100,000

Up to 2 years for possession and/or fines of up to 2,000

We are based in Boston and will fight for your rights. If you or someone you know has been arrested for marijuana charges, please don’t hesitate to speak with a criminal defense attorney at Dhar Law, LLP.
