Los Angeles Drug Crimes Lawyer
Legal Representation for Charges of Cultivation
Very recently efforts to intensify the crackdown on this state's pot growing has led to the federal government targeting not only growers and dispensers of marijuana, but also those who do business with them. As a result the property owners and landlords of spaces rented to people cultivating or dispensing marijuana are being charged also. This could possibly lead to the seizure of land or buildings leased to medical marijuana dispensaries and/or cultivators. Even when the actions are legal under state law, if you are in violation of federal law, you could possibly not only lose your property but face criminal charges.
The legal scene regarding marijuana is changing rapidly and if you or someone you know is being charged with drug cultivation, possession, distribution or sales you should immediately seek the services of a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney at Lessem, Newstat & Tooson, LLP.
