Ocean City, Maryland, Possession of Marihuana (Marijuana) or Possession of other Drugs

NEW – Maryland has changed its law for possession of small amounts of Marijuana –
 for more info

Each year many young (and young at heart) people come to visit Ocean City for vacation or summer jobs. Sometimes the wild and crazy days and warm partying nights can disrupt normal sensibilities and allow someone to make a bad decision resulting in a serious brush with the law. Many teens and young adults make a bad decision and get arrested for possession of drugs. The laws are generally the same across the drug types but differ in quantity of possession and severity of criminality by what type of drug – from marijuana to cocaine, Oxycontin, prescription drugs and up to meth-amphetamines and heroin. By far the most common drug arrest in Ocean City and surrounding Worcester County Maryland is for marijuana – or as OCPD classifies it “CDS: possession-marihuana”. If you have been arrested for possession of marijuana please find more info on our CDS Possession Of Marijuana Page.

 

Results are important. Most people are scared and want to avoid jail and a criminal record. That’s what we want, too. You are not paying for a wall flower; get an attorney who is tested and experienced. Whether you’ve made a mistake or are 100 percent innocent, you want results if you have been charged with any crime, especially with a drug crime. But don't take my word for it... Read what former clients say about me.

Frank Benvenuto is an Ocean City, Maryland, drug crime attorney who is an experienced trial lawyer.

Our job is to help you as much as possible.

A Results-Oriented Trial Lawyer

 

Protecting Your Rights

On occasion, the arresting officer or another police official will violate your rights. If that has happened, we will make full use of it.

A common misconception is that your rights were violated if your Miranda warning was not read to you. In fact, Miranda is triggered only when a suspect is in custody and is also being questioned. Unless both conditions are present, the police are not required to read you your Miranda warnings.

The law can be complicated. That is why you need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side.

At our law firm, we help Maryland residents and out-of-state visitors who have been charged with:

  • Drug possession of any controlled substance (Oxycontin, for example) or illegal drug (cocaine, marijuana, crack, methamphetamine or others)

  • Drug possession with intent to sell or drug trafficking and/or distribution

  • Drug manufacturing (meth lab) or the “growing of marijuana plants”

Our strategy begins by talking to you and examining all the evidence. Our law firm works as a team to find any loophole or witness or other mechanism that will help us keep you out of jail and keep your record clean of this offense.

Drugged Driving

Driving under the influence of drugs is treated much the same as DUI/DWI except for some differences in proof.

Visit our Maryland DWI/DUI Laws page for information on Impaired Driving, or our Impaired Advice page for advice on why you may be pulled over and what to do if that happens.
