    Grand Rapids MI Drug Crime AttorneyThe short answer is YES! If a person has a pending criminal case a judge can order as a term of bond not to use or allow possession of marijuana.

    This is much like alcohol, while it maybe legal to use or possess alcohol if you are of age, a judge would be within his/her discretion to prohibit use while a case is pending.

    This would be within the judge’s authority to protect the public from further criminal activity since there is plenty of evidence to suggest that at least 75% of criminal activity is associated with alcohol and drug use.

    Marijuana Possession After A Crime

    This same rationale would be applicable to a term of probation. A judge would be completely within his/her authority to prohibit use and possession with further conditions of random alcohol and drug testing. If you have been ordered to refrain from either use or possession be smart and know that courts do test and violating such conditions can lead to sanctions including jail.
