It’s easier than ever to grow anywhere from a roomful to a warehouse full of marijuana plants. As improved technology and techniques lead to increased crop yields, federal agents (feds) are enforcing national marijuana laws to match pace.

Federal marijuana charges can be filed against anyone who grows, possesses, transports, or sells marijuana. The feds typically only go after offenders who handle large quantities of weed and leave the smaller offenses to be enforced by local agencies. But if you are charged with federal marijuana offenses, it’s crucial you contact an experienced attorney to help present a strong defense.
