Question:  Does Lake County still prosecute Cannabis possession?

Answer: YES! Lake County is still prosecuting all Cannabis cases. These include arrests and citations for “personal use” amounts and up.

As such, if you are arrested or ticketed for cannabis possession, you should consult with a criminal defense attorney immediately. With the help of a criminal defense attorney, you may qualify for a deferred prosecution of the case or even an outright dismissal.
