A: I believe I understand what you are asking but if not, you may have to contact us directly for a better answer.

If you had a drug possession charge from 2017 or really anytime before you have a medical card, then you will have to resolve the case. If you get a medical card after you are charged, it will not dismiss the case since at the time you were charged or caught you were not legally allowed to be in possession of marijuana. I typically recommend to get a medical card, even after the charge occurs, because it will help your lawyer argue for a reduction in the charge. If you have a medical card, then you will be allowed to use your medicine even on probation (drug tests).

Like I said, please feel free to contact me directly for a confidential consultation and I can give more specific advice. or 480-935-6545.
