Rockville, Gaithersburg, Silver Spring & Wheaton, Maryland
On April 20th, people across the nation take to public areas to support the legalization of marijuana. Generally speaking these events are free of major incident, but it is important to remember that marijuana possession in Maryland can still result in both civil and criminal penalties.

Decriminalization is not Legalization
Possession of small amounts of marijuana has been decriminalized in Maryland. Possession has not, however, been legalized. Decriminalization simply means you will face civil charges such as fines instead of imprisonment for minor possession. It does not mean you can carry or use marijuana without consequence. Possession of larger amounts of the drug remains illegal and can result in serious criminal penalties.
The latest session of the Maryland General Assembly closed before several bills that would have loosened our state’s marijuana laws could be passed. This means that, for the time being, people charged with possession still need an experienced and aggressive criminal defense lawyer. Attorney Geller is here to help those charged with possession get the best outcomes possible.
