We are proud to announce that criminal defense attorney Randy Collins has joined Cannabis Law Group. Mr. Collins is a former prosecutor and served as a District Attorney in Riverside County before becoming a defense attorney. Mr. Collins will add much to Cannabis Law Group and has already made a big impact by obtaining a dismissal of all charges filed against one our collective operator clients.

Cannabis Law Group obtained a dismissal of two felony marijuana counts filed against a medical marijuana collective operator. The defendant was pulled over by the police while transporting medical marijuana for his collective. The collective operator attempted to show the arresting officers his paperwork evidencing his legal medical marijuana operation, however, the police arrested him and he was later prosecuted for transportation of marijuana and possession with intent to sell.
Attorney Randy Collins negotiated with the District Attorney’s office and informed them that the collective operator was following all state medical marijuana laws and would take nothing less than a dismissal of all charges. The Prosecutors initially refused, but the case was subsequently dismissed when attorneys for the collective operator appeared at the preliminary hearing with voluminous documents to show the collective was in compliance with state medical marijuana laws.
Attorneys for the collective also produced various witnesses who were prepared to testify on the collective’s behalf. Among these witnesses were a number of these seriously ill patients as well as managers of other charity groups to which the collective operator had donated money. The medical marijuana collective operator left the court with a full dismissal of all charges and was extremely satisfied with the outcome of this case.
