Legal Answers
Q. On Massachusetts probation with no condition about drug testing I have a medical weed card in state can I still smoke
A: If there are any conditions about remaining drug and alcohol free, that could be a problem. Otherwise your activity appears perfectly legal and for a purpose. You should speak to your PO directly if you still have concerns. It goes without saying that they'll probably want to look at your card. Good luck.
Q. A hotel lost my property what is my legal recourses
A: As annoying as this is for you it's not a criminal question. I guess it could be IF they would tell you the name of the employee who took it. You could seek a criminal complaint against him or her. I think that would be a waste of time and recommend being professional and polite with management. Your cards can be replaced, your license as well ***though it's a real inconvenience. Proving the amount of cash may be difficult.

Q. I've been charged with possession of guns that were stolen in another state, then transported to Massachusetts
A: Is there a warrant? Have you been arraigned? If you have a lawyer, he or she can answer that question.

If you’ve not been to court but found out about the case, you really should show up with a lawyer. Especially if you are from out of state. I know that doesn’t answer your questions but understand that you are not facing the facts. You are not facing the truth. You are facing what the police report says “happened. “ our job as lawyers, often times, is to show what really happened.
