If I am on probation for DUI, can I get a medical cannabis card or will this be a violation? 1 Answers as of November 10, 2017

I am prescribed narcotics which I am allowed to take but thought obtaining this may help to get me off the harder stuff with side effects. I have not smoked before, but since I found out it is now legal I thought I’d give it a try as my doctor thinks it is a good idea.

If you have a probation officer I would discuss it with him or her. You may have to petition the court for a clarification/modification so you are not violated. If you are on court probation and there is no specific clause restricting the use of drugs including marijuana then you would not be in violation even if you were caught using marijuana.
