Recently, there has been a shift in how people view marijuana use. With many states legalizing the use of marijuana for medical conditions, a number of states have also legalized the recreational use of marijuana. The legal issue when considering marijuana laws and marijuana possession is that marijuana is still illegal in Wisconsin, even though it may be legal in a neighboring state. Drug possession charges differ depending on the drug and the amount in possession. For instance, possession of a large amount of marijuana vs. possession of a more serious drug or club drug.

With so much drug trafficking of controlled substances and other illegal drugs flooding Wisconsin, possession of opioid pain killers is a serious offense. Opioid pain killers such as Oxycontin and Oxycodone are considered gateway drugs for users whose next step is generally heroin. For this reason, if caught with these illegal drugs in your possession (whether using or intent to distribute), you will face felony criminal charges. It's crucial to obtain the best Sheboygan drug possession lawyers - a law firm with integrity and experience as not only a criminal defense firm, but as Sheboygan's top drug and marijuana defense lawyers.

It's obvious that the charges faced are dependent upon the controlled substance and the amount found on you. Marijuana laws have been steady in Wisconsin and though there has been discussion about decriminalized marijuana, this has not come to pass. Complications and confusion also arise from differences in the law at the Wisconsin county level. Some counties have stricter drug laws than others and crossing into a different county can leave you in need of a criminal offense attorney.
