Operating A Marijuana Grow House In Kalamazoo Or Grand Rapids
Possessing a small amount of marijuana may result in misdemeanor charges, but growing the same amount of marijuana can result in harsh penalties as the authorities are much harder on individuals and groups who operate marijuana grow operations or "grow houses." Growing even a single marijuana plant could leave you facing felony charges.
At Willis Law, we understand that good people can find themselves in bad situations. If a criminal charge is threatening your future, you can rely on our experienced defense attorneys to protect your interests. Many of our clients are professionals and students who, like you, do not have a history of trouble with the law.
Do not speak to the police before you contact us for your free consultation. Nothing you tell them at this point can help you, but it can hurt you.
The Prosecution Will Be In No Mood To Cut You A Deal
Michigan has some of the toughest cultivation laws in the country. To have a chance at reducing the charges you face or defeating the prosecution at trial, it will be crucial to have our experienced team on your side.
If convicted of running a grow-op, you could be sentence to the following:
- Fewer than 20 marijuana plants: Four years in prison and $20,000 fine
- Between 20 and 200 marijuana plants: Seven years in prison and $500,000 fine
- Over 200 marijuana plants: 15 years in prison and $10 million fine
With so much at stake, it is critical to have our experience and resources on your side. We analyze every drug-related case to determine if there was an illegal search and seizure of evidence, and to determine if police had a proper search warrant and, if so, whether it was executed properly. When procedures are not followed and rights are violated, we can use that information to file motions to suppress evidence.
