An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This means getting your house in order is perhaps the most important part of staying out of jail while using, distributing, prescribing, or growing medical marijuana in Michigan.
Don't become a target. In my past practice I represented individuals charged with Marijuana manufacturing, distribution, possession and use, and a wide variety of criminal charges. However, when these cases reached my desk the crime had already been committed.
Unlike these scenarios, you have the option to set up your business so that you don't become a target of an prosecutor or a law enforcement official in your community. Vagueness in the law today makes it easy for law enforcement officials to come down hard on innocent people. The same vagueness of that law makes it possible as an attorney to get charges dismissed.
Don't be made an example of. This is a time where people are being used to set an example. Knowing the rules and laws will keep you from going to jail. I have developed a program based on educating and informing my clients to help them avoid any legal complications. Unfortunately, some people come to me when it's too late for prevention. While we wish no one to be in this situation, defending in a court of law and winning is what I like to do.
