Defending Grow Operations of All Sizes
With countless homes and businesses sitting empty after the mortgage and financial meltdowns, hydroponic marijuana grow houses have sprung up in neighborhoods all across the state. Without the need for soil or natural light, any empty structure can provide a good setting for a grow house.
When a grow house is raided by the police, many parties may be charged with drug crimes, including the property owner or landlord. In many cases, the owner or landlord has no knowledge of the grow house operation. At the Law Offices of Jed Silverman, we represent all parties charged in grow house raids. We carefully examine the evidence for admissibility and the arrest for violations of constitutional rights. We will aggressively fight the charges against you.

Cultivation of marijuana is a serious charge with hefty penalties. You can be charged with a separate count for each plant found on the property. People can also be charged with possessing the elements of hydroponic growing such as seeds, fertilizer and grow lamps.
If you are convicted of a first-time cultivation offense, you may face the following federal penalties:
- A five-year minimum mandatory prison term for 100 or more marijuana plants, regardless of their weight
- A 10-year minimum mandatory prison term for 1,000 or more marijuana plants, regardless of their weight
Fines and probation may accompany the prison sentence. In addition, you may face state charges and penalties.

These can all be charged as federal crimes, so make sure that your attorney has the experience to battle with federal prosecutors.
