Marijuana Production & Distribution: Expert Opinion & Testimony
Though a majority of the states are recognizing the medical value of cannabis,
there are still many state and federal laws that make the possession,
production and distribution of marijuana a criminal offense. Even in states
like Washington and Colorado, that have legalized recreational cannabis
possession, sales and production, there are criminal laws that can and
are used to prosecute people for cannabis violations. This is also true
in states that have medical marijuana laws. The government uses law enforcement
to provide their expert testimony to obtain convictions. Who do you have
providing expert testimony for your case?

If you are facing criminal allegations involving marijuana charges, your

Often, people are accused of "possession with intent to distribute"
when they are accused of marijuana-related offenses. This is usually based
on the alleged weight of the marijuana in question and there is often
no clear cut line in the law regarding how much is required to prove the
alleged intentions. Generally, law enforcement is called by the government
to testify that "based on their training and experience" the
amount alleged to have been found is generally for sales and distribution.
In these cases, it is important to have a real marijuana expert examine
the evidence and render an opinion about the alleged marijuana in question.
Even as more states pass medical cannabis laws, patients, their caregivers
and their medical marijuana providers can and do find themselves charged
and prosecuted for marijuana violations. Sometimes these prosecutions
are initiated by the United States Attorneys and brought under federal
law. Other times they are brought by state prosecutors under state law.
Either way, if you find yourself in a legal predicament involving allegations
of cannabis violations, you should have a cannabis production and distribution
expert examine the evidence and provide an opinion to your attorney and
the Court, if necessary.
Also, as more states establish regulated medical and recreational cannabis
distribution systems, complex civil and criminal statutes are going to
apply to the businesses involved in that industry. When businesses are
involved in litigation that involves violations of those laws, their legal
team is going to want the insight of a cannabis production and distribution
expert. Often these regulatory actions or administrative review hearing
will require the reports and testimony of experts regarding compliance
with the laws and regulations.
