I will admit that I am a wacko at law. I have a criminal record for the past 10 years for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. I have had several speeding tickets, a DUI, and many more arrests. However, I am not a wacko at law because I don’t think it is right that I should be.
There is a certain logic to this. It is called the “law of analogy,” and it holds that, for example, if you are charged with a traffic violation, you should first have to pay a fine. The same holds for marijuana possession, DUI, and other types of crimes. The argument is that there is a better way to accomplish the same purpose, one that is likely more effective, efficient, and fair.
That’s right. There is a better way. Not only does the analogy work in criminal law, but in a lot of other situations, too. For example, if you are charged with a DUI, you need to prove that your blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit. Similarly, if you are charged with a marijuana possession charge, you need to prove that your marijuana use was legal.
Yeah, I know that one was a little too harsh, but it’s good to see that the legal system isn’t being totally ignored for the sake of efficiency. I mean, you can’t do everything. But it does mean that we’re not quite as out in the cold as we’ve been in the past.
Sure, the point is that its not entirely black & white. But in the case of marijuana, its the same as the driving under the influence case. It is one of those cases where just because you get punished for the act, doesnt necessarily mean you are guilty of the crime.
And no, its not just about weed. The same can be said for any drug of any kind, and we have seen that with alcohol.
And it appears that just because you’re charged criminally for the possession of a drug (such as weed) does not mean that you can’t argue that you’re not guilty for the possession of an actual drug.
No, no. And, yes, its about smoking marijuana. It’s one of the safest, most legal ways you can do it.
A lot of people come to us for their legal defense. We are trained to defend people in the most basic of situations. We are trained to defend them from the consequences of their actions.
Your story. It started with a little girl who needed a haircut and decided to turn into a big fat dude who would never leave his place to cut a check (which he would). She eventually left and got to work, having been told to get some exercise. Unfortunately, she was only going to be in the middle of a major event and was soon out of the country. She was then forced to work out. Unfortunately, she was sentenced to prison but the punishment was too harsh.
