Although some regions of the U.S. have legalized marijuana—at least for certain uses—in the state of Texas, marijuana in all its forms is illegal. If you’ve been charged with any crime related to marijuana, including such offenses as trafficking, possession, or use, you need to know how to find the right marijuana defense attorney in Fort Worth and beyond. Here’s what you should look for:
Willingness to Represent Clients Regarding Marijuana Crimes
Not all lawyers are willing to represent clients accused of crimes related to marijuana.
