College Park Marijuana Charge Attorney
Serving College Park, Gaithersburg, and the Surrounding Areas
In Maryland, conviction for possession of marijuana carries up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. This rarely happens. Absent something aggravating, there is a drug education course and community service. Along with motions to have the search declared illegal, you can often minimize the criminal penalties you face. The collateral consequences are another matter. A conviction, even for a misdemeanor, could affect your ability to get a job or your education.
However, if you are a college student, what is illegal to present as evidence against you in court is often admissible evidence in a student conduct hearing. In judicial board and academic dishonesty hearings, there are no motions to suppress evidence. If a police officer illegally seizes marijuana or paraphernalia, they can present it to the judicial board and jeopardize your academic standing.
With so much on the line, it is essential that you seek experienced and knowledgeable representation. You need the Law Offices of Steven M. Jacoby. For more than 37 years, I have represented thousands of defendants facing charges in Maryland, in both state and federal court.

Defense From All Marijuana Charges
The penalties you face may vary, depending on the amount of marijuana and your prior record. I have defended clients in Maryland District, Circuit, and Juvenile Courts as well as in the federal system. I can help you with any marijuana charges, including:
- Possession of marijuana
- Possession with intent to distribute marijuana
- Drug sales and distribution charges
- Marijuana trafficking
- Cultivation of marijuana and growhouse charges
- Possession of drug paraphernalia, including pipes, bongs, rolling papers, and vaporizers
Possession with intent to distribute and distribution are both felonies and are treated more seriously. The chances of exposure and getting kicked out of school are more profound. Let me put my experience to work for you. My goal is to keep you out of jail and minimize the impact these charges have on your education and your future.
