Note that despite the legalization of recreational marijuana in California, there are still potential consequences such as criminal charges and severe penalties, including imprisonment and substantial fines, for certain marijuana-related offenses. To protect your legal rights, it’s crucial to have a veteran attorney who is familiar with the evolving laws surrounding Cannabis.

Marijuana Possession

According to California Health and Safety Code 11357, if you are found guilty of possessing more than 28.5 grams, which is equivalent to one ounce of marijuana, you could be subject to a $500 fine, or jail time of up to six months. If you are between 18 and 21, this offense can be charged as an infraction.

For individuals under the age of 18, penalties may include community service and substance abuse counseling. However, if you are caught in possession of Cannabis with the intent to distribute, it is considered a felony, that may result in prison sentencing of 16 months to three years.
