Possession Charge Dismissed by Section 8 Motion | Shyler Engel, PLLC

August 24, 20160
A Shyler Engel, PLLC client was pulled over by the police after he failed to come to a complete stop at a stop sign. The officer approached the car and claimed to smell marijuana. Our client immediately furnished a small amount of marijuana. Our client did not possess a medical marihuana card at the time of the stop. Our client came to meet with us and was happy to learn that the certification from a doctor he had met prior to the incident would be helpful in having the charge dismissed through Section 8 of the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. Shyler filed the motion, and the City Attorney offered to reduce the charge to the non-abstractable no point civil infraction of Impeding Traffic. Our client accepted.
