Can I beat a case for possession of paraphanelia? I was just wondering if I had a leg to stand on because I am an az medical marijuana and I got caught with a pot pipe exactly 2 months before I received my card I got my card last June and this happened in april.
Because you did not obtain a medical marijuana card until after the date of offense, you cannot use the card as a valid defense. However, if you currently use marijuana for medical purposes, that may be a mitigating factor that your attorney should present to the state on your behalf. In addition, your attorney should review your case to ensure that there were no other constitutional violations that might warrant a dismissal. If you do not yet have an attorney, there are some excellent attorneys on this forum. Good luck!
