Sorry, Ohioans you have not come around just yet to the notion that marijuana should be treated like alcohol. Whether we like it or not this controversial “drug” is still illegal in the Buckeye State and will be for the foreseeable future. Ohio is a state where NO ONE can ever say…it’s no big deal it’s just weed.
Prosecutors have a penchant for treating recreational marijuana users the same way that they treat hard drug defendants. It may seem archaic, but that is the way it is. By the way, medical use of weed was approved by the state on Sept. 8, 2016. Another piece of good news is that Ohio has loosened its marijuana laws in general.
However, (and read this point very carefully) even though the possession of less than 100 grams of cannabis is not a jailable offense it could result in someone losing their driver’s license for up to FIVE years! Could you afford that? In Northeast Ohio you need to call Akron marijuana defense attorney Jon Sinn immediately. The only sin is not calling Jon at (330) 431-0160.
