Arrested for Marijuana and in Need of a Prescription

However, Mr. Karimi has received many favorable resolutions for defendants who are charged with possession or delivery of pot and received a prescription after being charged. Mr. Karimi is familiar with the medical process to help gain a valid prescription for marijuana.
