Laws against drugs are changing all over the country. It is legal in Colorado and Michigan now to use marijuana recreationally. However, in most of the United States, it is not legal to do so. It is also still against federal law to be in possession of marijuana. In Michigan, it is still illegal to be in possession of marijuana if you are under the age of 21.

Shawn will make sure the charge in accordance with Michigan law.
If you are facing a possession of drug charge, a person must know that they were in fact in possession of an illegal narcotic.
