Marijuana Possession Charges Common After Traffic Stops

It is a misdemeanor offense if you are caught with marijuana in your vehicle in Utah. In addition to criminal charges, you can face collateral consequences that include the loss of your driver's license.

Since the legalization of recreational marijuana in Colorado and Nevada, we have noticed a rise in people bringing their legally purchased marijuana into Utah. Moving controlled across state lines is a crime and in some instances may lead to federal charges. We will protect your rights and advocate for your interests if you are facing marijuana possession, trafficking or other related criminal charges in Utah.
