Drug Charges

Due to the dramatic changes in marijuana laws nationwide, typical law-abiding citizens passing through Iowa can find themselves facing arrest and criminal charges. Medical marijuana, while not recognized in Iowa, can still be a defense to marijuana possession charges.

If you are facing a drug charge in Iowa, contact me immediately so I can help you avoid potentially serious penalties and life-long repercussions.

Marijuana laws in Iowa can be harsh, arbitrary and hypocritical.

  • A person possessing more than forty-two and a half grams of marijuana can be charged with failure to affix an Iowa tax stamp to marijuana, a felony offense.
  • Possessing marijuana or another unlawful controlled substance can result in suspension of your Iowa driving privileges, even though the arrest had nothing to do with driving.
  • A person can be charged with operating while under the influence of marijuana based upon a urinalysis, which tests for a marijuana metabolite which provides no indication of intoxication.

If you are facing a drug charge in Iowa, contact me immediately so I can help you avoid potentially serious penalties and life-long repercussions.
