Could Using Legal Marijuana Cost you Custody of your Children?
Morris-Sockle Attorney Katrina Otto explains the complexties of this legal issue
“Marijuana is legal in Washington, so it shouldn’t be used against me.”
Yes, recreational marijuana has been legal in Washington since 2012. You may know people that regularly use it, and you may even partake yourself. You may think that since it’s legal to use marijuana in Washington, it can’t be used against you in family law courts. But, using marijuana, even recreationally, can work to your disadvantage in custody & divorce cases. The Washington Family Law Courts take marijuana usage very seriously when deciding which parent will have primary custody.
