If you are facing marijuana charges, it's critically important to engage the services of Dallas marijuana possession attorney, Deandra M. Grant. Although marijuana is a widely used recreational drug that is virtually decriminalized in other states, in Texas, a conviction for a marijuana offense can incur hefty fines, incarceration, driver's license suspension and a criminal record.
Just because you're being accused of a marijuana offense, it doesn't necessarily mean that you will be convicted. Attorney Grant knows how to defend marijuana cases and to demand that the burden of proof be placed on the prosecution. Any doubt placed in the minds of the judge or jury may result in a reduction or dismissal of charges against you.
