Marijuana Criminal Defense

Marijuana Possession & Possession for Sale

Marijuana Possession and/or Possession for Sale can be a serious criminal offense. If you’re accused of possessing marijuana or possessing marijuana for sale in California, you could face stiff fines, probation, and even serious time in jail.

The penalties for marijuana possession vary. If you are over the age of 21 and are convicted of possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, the sentence can be limited to a $100 fine without jail time requirements. However, the conviction will show up on your criminal record. If you’re convicted of possessing more than an ounce, you will face much stiffer penalties. In addition, Californians under 21 could face a year-long loss of driver’s license privileges if convicted of possession.

If the prosecutor can prove that you possessed marijuana with the intent to sell it, your situation is much more dire. This is a felony crime with mandatory imprisonment upon conviction. Though the burden of proof lies upon the prosecutor, various factors could affect the conviction, such as an address book with potential clients or a large amount of cash on hand at the time of the arrest.

Whether you’re accused of straight possession or intent to sell, a marijuana possession accusation is no time to “go it alone.” The right Los Angeles marijuana possession defense attorney knows alternatives for sentencing and can defend you in court, protecting your freedom, your finances, and your future.
