The Cannabis laws in Washington State have been an ever-changing landscape. Since the inception of the voter passed initiative, allowing a Compassionate Use Defense, in 1998, the law has gone through several changes. Still, one thing remains the same: you can still be arrested and you can still be prosecuted for possessing cannabis. This is true, even if you are an authorized patient.
At Pelley Law, we believe that these cases are worth fighting. We believe that even though the Police and Prosecutor’s throughout the State have the power to arrest and prosecute, it is wrong. The only way to put an end to this, is by taking cases to trial and then demanding the return of the property taken.
It is difficult enough that a person is suffering so badly that they must turn to a drug in order to seek relief. It is far more difficult that a person must suffer the indignity of having their door kicked in, a gun pointed at their family and their homes turned upside down by the same police that are assigned to protect and serve the citizen’s of Washington. Often times, people are just willing to do whatever it takes to put an end to the case, even though they have a legal and constitutional right to challenge the charges.
If you are charged with manufacturing with intent to deliver cannabis, and you were a legally authorized patient, contact us today. We will fight for your Constitutional rights and we will defend your case under the Compassionate Use Act of Washington State.
