Marijuana Defense Attorneys in Martinsburg

Serving Clients Throughout West Virginia, Berkeley County & Beyond

West Virginia Code SS 60-A-4-407 is the section of law that governs marijuana laws in West Virginia.

Cannabis is illegal in West Virginia, yet it should not be. Laws related to marijuana or “marihuana” have been debated throughout West Virginia, and some cities and localities have implemented programs to reduce the burden of enforcing prohibition. First-time misdemeanor offenders may be eligible for pre-trial diversion programs so that they may avoid being incarcerated.  

The charges involving marijuana crimes still carry heavy penalties that can affect many aspects of the offender’s future. For instance, if you are charged with possession of marijuana, you will have an arrest record that could appear in background searches for potential employers and landlords. Marijuana convictions can have an adverse impact on immigration and student loan status.

If you find yourself charged with a marijuana related offense, you should contact an attorney at The Criminal Law Center immediately. Our attorneys will not only fight individual cases, but we also practice actively in the National Legal Committee of NORML (the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws), an organization that advocates for the reform of marijuana laws throughout the state of West Virginia and the United States.

Founding partner, Kevin D. Mills has served on the legal board for NORML and worked as an associate for attorney, John Flowers Mark, William B. Moffitt and John Zwerling, early advocates of reforming marijuana laws in our country .   

The best defense often involves filing and litigating all viable motions to suppress evidence or statements. Many of these cases involve unreasonable and illegal searches and seizures that should be thoroughly contested in court.

For any marijuana crime, a good defense also requires filing and litigating motions under the 9th Amendment right to privacy, as well as the improper classification of marijuana as a narcotic substance. Contact The Criminal Law Center to discuss your case. Call (304) 262-9300 for a free consultation.
