Smith is a highly skilled and experienced RI Criminal Defense Lawyer, having defended a number of clients who have been charged with RI Marijuana possession, and RI Marijuana possession related criminal offenses.

Marijuana possession crimes in RI are in a state of flux. However, while society's perception of marijuana use is becoming more acceptable, and absent any specified legal use, Marijuana possession is still a crime in RI! It is characterized by the DEA as a Schedule I drug, meaning (among other things) has high potential for abuse and no acceptable uses for treatment. Individual states have been moving away from this position with the passage of medical marijuana laws, but keep in mind, that just because a state says its legal, there are no similar laws at the federal level making all possession, use, manufacture, cultivation and delvery strictly illegal under United States law.

Being convicted of a Marijuana crime in RI creates an RI criminal record. That record stays with you and can impact your job, potential new employment and may have a negative impact on your credit worthiness. Again, if you have been arrested for an RI Marijuana related crime, including any alleged violation of the RI Medical Marijuana Act, call any time. I provide competitive fees, a free consultation and I will remain singularly focused on obtaining the best possible disposition for YOU!
