SYNTHETIC MARIJUANA Charges in Nebraska
Defense for the Accused in Lincoln & Omaha
Synthetic marijuana or K2 is sold under names such as Legal Devil, Demon,
Yucatan Fire, Skunk, LOL, Tsunami and Scooby Snax. The drugs are usually
made of plant material, which is sprayed with chemicals that mimic the
effects of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. Synthetic marijuana is the second
most highly used drug by high school seniors, after marijuana. It is responsible
for hundreds of emergency room admissions each year. As a result, police
in Nebraska and many other states are cracking down on its use.
Possession of synthetic marijuana, including drugs sold as “incense”
and “bath salts,” is now treated the same as possession of
regular marijuana in Nebraska. While possession of a small quantity of
synthetic marijuana is treated as an infraction, subject to a $300 fine,
possession or distribution of larger quantities is a felony.
Established in 1965, the Berry Law Firm has established a statewide and
national reputation for excellence in defense of drug charges. With offices

Protecting Clients From Serious Criminal Charges
Tobacco stores, head shops, party stores and other small businesses that
sold synthetic marijuana over the counter can now find themselves facing
serious felony charges in Nebraska if they attempt to unload their inventory
of bath salts, incense and other banned substances. Anyone who has been
charged with a felony should contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer
as soon as possible.
Our lawyers defend accused distributors as well as those who are charged
with possession of synthetic drugs. Depending on the circumstances of
the arrest, our lawyers may be able to raise defenses such as:
- Lack of probable cause to search the suspect or his or her vehicle
- Lack of probable cause to support a warrantless search and seizure
- Coerced confessions
