Individuals arrested and charged with a Pennsylvania marijuana offense have numerous potential defenses available to them. An experienced Pennsylvania criminal attorney will be able to analyze the circumstances of your arrest, particularly the actions of law enforcement, and propose all applicable defenses to your charge of marijuana possession or distribution. For instance, one of the most common defenses is to challenge the validity of the search and seizure of the marijuana. If your constitutional rights were violated, the evidence gathered against you may be excluded, and the charges may be dropped. Contact a Pennsylvania criminal defense lawyer today to start building your defense.
