Los Angeles Marijuana Attorney

Charges for Marijuana Possession or Possession for Sale

In the city of Los Angeles, marijuana is viewed as a common recreational drug that is easily accessible. The state of California is a pioneering medical marijuana state, and was the first state to allow American medical marijuana in 1992. Marijuana is grown from the marijuana plant and can be used to relax or to heighten perception. The possession of marijuana is considered to be a crime unless you qualify as a medical patient under California state laws. If you are caught in possession of one ounce or less of marijuana you will be charged with an infraction and will have to pay a maximum $100 fine plus fees.

Possession of larger amounts of marijuana is a misdemeanor that is punishable by up to six months in jail and fines of $500. However, California laws allow first and second time possession-only offenders to demand a treatment program as an alternative to jail. With the help of a Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer, you can fight your marijuana charges with skilled legal guidance. An attorney can help you avoid conviction by making a pre-guilty plea if you have been charged with possession or personal use cultivation. With the help of our legal team, a pre-guilty plea can result in dismissed charges if the defendant successfully completes a diversion program.

Medical Marijuana in Los Angeles

California allows the use of marijuana for medical patients when a doctor has determined that the patient's health would benefit from marijuana. People who suffer from conditions like cancer, AIDS, chronic pain, glaucoma, arthritis, Hepatitis C, Crohn's disease and migraines may qualify for medical marijuana use. If you are caught in possession of marijuana and you do not have a medical identification card, you will be subject to penalties under the law.
