Two Separate Marijuana Convictions Dismissed – Montcalm County – Keeley Blanchard represented one client charged with two separate possession of marijuana charges, with incident dates several months apart. In the first case, Ms. Blanchard filed a motion to suppress based upon a search by the police that violated the fourth amendment. After a hearing, the judge determined that the police did in fact violate her client’s rights, and suppressed the marijuana found in the home, resulting in a dismissal of that charge. On the second case, Ms. Blanchard filed a motion to dismiss based upon a Section 4 defense under the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act. The prosecuting attorney dismissed the charges prior to the hearing on the motion.
