Despite the move to legalize marijuana in many states, it remains illegal in the state of Wisconsin. If you are charged with possession of marijuana, it is considered a misdemeanor, even if it is your first offense. A subsequent offense is considered a felony.
Consequences of a drug crime conviction are wide-ranging and long-lasting. Aside from the penalties you suffer under Wisconsin law, a conviction on your record could impact student loan status, employment, housing and professional licenses. If you face a drug crime charge, you must involve an aggressive criminal defense team.
