Medical Marijuana Lawyers Washington, DCIf you or someone you love has a problem or condition that can be helped with marijuana but you are having a hard time getting it or obtaining a license to do so, or have other issues related to DC medical marijuana laws, it may be in your best interest to discuss your particular situation with medical marijuana lawyers in Washington, D.C.

In the District of Columbia, medical marijuana is marijuana that is grown, cultivated and then dispensed pursuant to the Legalization of Marijuana for Medical Treatment Act of 2010 (and its various amendments) is legal. Even though marijuana that is specifically for medicinal purposes and can only be prescribed by medical doctors is legal in Washington, D.C., it is not legal at the federal level. Patients whose doctors have prescribed marijuana for a disease or ailment for which a doctor believes marijuana will be more helpful than not should be aware of this.

If you have legal questions about medical marijuana use in Washington, D.C., lawyers that are licensed to help people with marijuana laws and issues in Washington, D.C., may be good people to start with when looking for answers and help.

Washington, D.C. Police and Medical Marijuana

In general, the police and other law enforcement officers and agencies in Washington, D.C. recognize and respect D.C.’s medical marijuana laws and the rights of patients, doctors, medical marijuana businesses (including growers, cultivators, and distributors/dispensaries) and others involved in some way with medical marijuana.

Nevertheless, it is important for people that have any level of involvement with medical marijuana, to be aware that in most circumstances it is illegal under federal law. When someone gets in trouble with the federal government for marijuana, the federal government does not recognize state medical marijuana laws and will treat possession of medical marijuana that was legally obtained in a state where medical marijuana is legal, the same way it would treat marijuana for recreational or other purposes- as illegal to possess and use.

When people need help with Washington, D.C. medical marijuana laws and other legal matters, it is important to make sure that their team of lawyers is licensed to defend the rights of people in Washington, D.C. 

From patients to medical doctors to providers of medical marijuana that is legal in D.C., people in possession of marijuana may face arrest, prosecution, and incarceration if they are caught on federal land or property in possession of any kind of marijuana. If this happens, they will likely need the help of Washington, D.C. medical marijuana lawyers

Legal issues over medical marijuana are often common in Washington, D.C. because of its proximity to so much federal land and property.

Many people who are involved in the medical marijuana industry also have many legal needs. Even though medical marijuana is legal in Washington, D.C., like all industries in the U.S., the medical marijuana industry is highly regulated by many laws. Doctors and patients also may need help to make sure that the way they are prescribing and obtaining medical marijuana is done legally given the many new laws that dictate what needs to be done to stay within the law.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
