Even a valid medical marijuana card does have some limitations with regard to amount. Such as:
"Up to four ounces may be purchased per 30 days. The Department of Health may set limits on the amount of marijuana possessed, “provided that the limit is not less than a 60 days supply.”...Read more »
To give an educated answer would require a through review of the case against you, your criminal history, and a discussion with you. In other words this is a question you need to ask your criminal defense attorney after thoroughly discussing the case with them.
You absolutely do not have to speak to them. You have the right to remain silent. If the police seek to speak to you might invoke your right to remain silent by saying the magic words. "I want a lawyer." Then shut up do not discuss anything as anything you say to them will be used against you.
Your son needs to speak to a criminal defense attorney immediately. He should not speak to anyone other than his attorney or one that he is seeking to hire about this. Anything he says to anyone else may be used against him.
I have been in and out of Dr. offices, psychiatrist's, and Counsiling appointments since I was 12 years old, taken from my mother for child abuse and neglect. I was taken to a boy's and girl's home called The Noyes Home in St. Joseph, MO: I have been on meds every since. I have been... Read more »
It’s not a lawsuit unless you sue and have a case number. I don’t think that it will be worth your spending thousands of dollars to sue and doubt that any attorney will represent you on a contingency basis because your damages are not easily quantifiable. Plus, you are entitled to go see a...Read more »
I'm being told that in Missouri, you have to REQUEST a speedy trial? From what I'm aware of, the (6th Amendment) Right to a Speedy Trial, is active by default and only changes if you formally waive your right to the speedy trial. This is for a criminal case with a felony charge if that... Read more »
You are right in your assertion that you have a 6th Amendment right to a speedy trial, however there are 2 different concepts of a speedy trial. Procedurally, you do in fact have to request a speedy trial and the court should set a trial date as soon as it is reasonably possible. Once you relay to...Read more »
My husband was murdered and the person who committed the crime was first charged with 2nd degree murder and unlawful use of a deadly weapon. Now the unlawful use of a deadly weapon is changed to armed criminal action and 2nd degree murder Which is worse? Armed criminal action or unlawful use of a... Read more »
First and foremost, sorry for your loss. That is a terrible thing to go through. Every situation is different, but typically a person who is convicted of armed criminal action in Missouri may have to serve a prison sentence of at least three years. On the other hand, an unlawful use of a weapon...Read more »

I don’t know what you mean about the state trying to charge you. It either has or hasn’t charged you. If the latter then you should hire an attorney to defend the lawsuit. It would be the state’s burden to establish culpability on your end.
A Contractor I hired to remodel my home merely covered ceilings with new drywall rather than removing damaged, molded tiles, insulation, & wood. He did the same with plywood on the floors. This was unknown to me until after I fired him & hired a new Contractor. The floors are now COVERED... Read more »
You could contact the Missouri Attorney General's office. If work was done poorly, as opposed to your money being taken and no work done, unfortunately that office is unlikely to go after the contractor on your behalf. You'd need to hire your own attorney to sue but before doing so you...Read more »
