Marijuana Charges And Your Immigration Status
Marijuana-related drug charges can severely threaten your immigration status. Although many states are more accepting of marijuana usage, the federal government continues to crack down on immigrants convicted of drug possession. If you are confronted with marijuana charges as an immigrant, now is the time to take action to protect your rights.

Many other attorneys in Michigan may only understand one side of the law, but our ability to defend both immigration law and criminal cases can provide you with comprehensive and effective representation.
How Marijuana Charges Can Affect Your Status
A conviction of marijuana-related charges can result in the following penalties:
- Mandatory detention
- Loss of asylum
- Bar to citizenship
- Federal charges upon reentry
These penalties can apply to lawful permanent residents, green card holders, refugees and visa holders, including Canadians in TN status. While the potential consequences are severe, it is important to remember that you are entitled to Constitutional protections in court, just like an American citizen.
