Understanding California Drug Charges

Under California law, there are several classifications of drug crimes with which a person could be charged. A drug charge could be handled as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the type of drug, the amount of the drug in question, and other circumstantial factors. California law also draws a distinction between the types of controlled substances, with offenses related to the group of drugs known as narcotics generally carrying more severe penalties than do offenses involving drugs that are considered less dangerous.

No matter what type of charges you may be dealing with, we will work with you to find the best possible resolution.

Marijuana-Related Charges

In 2018, the recreational use of cannabis for adults was legalized throughout the state of California. While it is legal under state law for adults to purchase and use marijuana, there are still ways in which a person could face criminal charges related to the drug. For example, an individual is only permitted to possess up to one ounce of cannabis or eight grams of concentrate. A person may also grow as many as six cannabis plants for personal use. Exceeding these amounts could lead to misdemeanor charges, and a conviction could result in up to six months in jail and fines of up to $500. For those under the age of 21, possession of any amount of marijuana could have criminal consequences. It is also against the law to consume cannabis in certain areas and to sell marijuana without the proper licensing.
