California's Medical Marijuana Laws

If you are facing criminal charges for using, possessing, or cultivating marijuana for medicinal purposes, you are not alone. Medical marijuana is a subject of high controversy in California. In 1996, the state voted to permit the possession, use, and cultivation of marijuana for people suffering from serious medical conditions, illnesses, and ailments. However, under federal law, it’s still a crime to possess, use, or cultivate marijuana, regardless if it’s for medical purposes or not. This has lead to an increase in the number of people facing criminal charges for “crimes” involving marijuana.

If you have been arrested, charged, or are currently under investigation for using, cultivating, or possessing marijuana for medical purposes, it’s imperative that you speak with a skilled Los Angeles marijuana defense attorney as soon as possible. You have rights under state law that cannot be violated, and an experienced defense lawyer can protect you from criminal prosecution.

California Medical Marijuana Laws

Medical marijuana laws were enacted to provide relief to people suffering from serious illnesses and diseases, such as AIDS, glaucoma, arthritis, cancer, chronic pain, migraine, spasticity, cachexia, multiple sclerosis, and more. Under Proposition 215 and Senate Bill 420, Californians who have a legitimate medical prescription from a licensed physician can purchase, cultivate, or possess a reasonable amount of marijuana.

The rule used to cap the marijuana at up to 8 ounces marijuana (or six mature or 12 immature marijuana plants) for personal use. New case law in California removes these limits. When recommended by a doctor, a person may be able to obtain larger quantities of marijuana. Prop 215 and Senate Bill 420 also grant protection to medical marijuana dispensaries throughout the state.
