Medical Marijuana Attorney in Orlando

Although marijuana or cannabis is now used legally to a certain extent in Florida for medical purposes, recreational marijuana is still illegal. The problem is, there are situations in which individuals are charged with marijuana crimes even though they are approved to use it for medical purposes. There is a gray area that often becomes confusing, leaving innocent people facing civil or criminal charges. When you need a medical marijuana attorney in Orlando, rely on Adams & Luka for solid legal guidance and representation.

Essentially, without a valid prescription you will face problems if caught with marijuana. This means that ultimately you could face penalties that range from jail time, fines or probation to prison time depending on the circumstances of your particular case. Medical marijuana may be a strong defense if you have been arrested or charged with a crime involving marijuana.

Who Can Legally Use Medical Marijuana in Orlando?

In 2016 Amendment 2 was approved by voters, making marijuana for medical purposes legal. Prior to this only the most seriously ill were allowed to use marijuana for medical reasons, and even then, the marijuana had to be high in CBD and with .8% or less in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). About a year before the passing of Amendment 2 law enforcement officers were given discretion regarding situations involving the possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana; they could make an arrest or issue a citation.

At the present time, there is specific criteria that determines who can legally use medical marijuana. Those who qualify must:

  • Be diagnosed as having a debilitating medical condition; and
  • The condition is certified by a physician; and
  • Possess a valid or legal identification card

Of course, those who qualify to use marijuana for medical purposes are not the only ones who may find themselves in legal hot water. Growers, dispensaries, those who produce edible forms of marijuana and even doctors may be accused of marijuana crimes. This is why it is critical to work with an Orlando cannabis defense lawyer who is experienced and knowledgeable in this area of the law.

Client Reviews

I would like thank my attorney Thomas Luka. I knew from the beginning I had the right guy in my corner. While celebrating with family and friends at a Public Park in Seminole County, a fight broke out among various people. Myself, and a good friend, broke up the fight and the instigators left. Six months later, I was wrongly accused as the person who started the fight. The first attorney I hired could not even get a response from the State Attorney handling the case. Someone referred me to Tom and I felt comfortable at his demeanor and reactions.

After conversations with Tom, who knew I would settle for nothing less than a FULL DISMISSAL due to my innocence, I hired him. His firm of Adams and Luka did the due diligence by interviewing witnesses and the police who were on the scene, as well as starting a dialogue with the State Attorney. After gathering statements from witnesses, Tom was able to present a strong argument on my behalf to the State Attorney on why the case should be dismissed. If the State Attorney was not willing to dismiss the case, Tom was ready to take the case to trial.

The result by Thomas Luka: Case Dismissed.

I am 53 years old with a spotless record and glad to keep it that way thanks to the time, effort, hard work, and professionalism of the Adams and Luka and Tom Luka.

Thomas Luka left a life-long great impression of lawyers. He was always professional, on time, and answered things honestly. From the start and during the 14 months it went on - Tom was very upfront and honest with me about the possible outcomes. The result was better than I had hoped for. Tom really over-delivered. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Marcela Giorgi
