Marijuana Crimes in California
The legal use of marijuana for recreational purposes is not yet a reality. Law enforcement and state prosecutors are still hard at work arresting anyone possessing even small amounts of the drug.
I worked for 12 years as a prosecutor and am well-versed in the strategies the other side will use to obtain a plea or a conviction. I now use my experience to help anyone charged with a marijuana-related crime defend himself or herself against fines, jail time and more. I am a results-orientated attorney who can be counted on to get you out of a tough situation involving:
- Possession: Possessing 1 ounce or less of marijuana is considered a misdemeanor, but it is definitely something you do not want to have on your record. Drug convictions can impact your ability to secure employment or housing in the future. Possession of more than an ounce could result in fines or up to six months in county jail. You may be eligible for a drug treatment program under Penal Code 1000 or Proposition 36, which we will discuss in depth during your consultation.
- Cultivation: Cultivation (growing) of marijuana could result in significant fines and a state prison sentence, if convicted.
- Possession for sale: Possessing marijuana with the intent to sell is charged as a felony regardless of the amount. Prosecutors can charge a person with intent to sell even if no sales transaction took place. For example, police might find and recover large quantities at your residence, scales, packaging or other evidence indicating your intent to distribute.
