DeFabio, Beckham & Solis: Aggressive Defense for Drug Charges

Our state is close to getting a public vote to legalize medical marijuana. Until it does, the possession of marijuana, pot, ganja, kush weed, or 420 in Miami will lead to some of the stiffest penalties in the nation. Marijuana drug crimes carry both fines and imprisonment as possible penalties.

Oddly enough, these penalties and tough laws have not prevented our state from reaching the number one spot for indoor production of marijuana.
