Medical Marijuana Offenses
Accused of a medical marijuana offense? You deserve a skilled drug defense attorney.
Under California’s Compassionate Use Act, medical marijuana has been legal for the treatment of various diseases and conditions since 1996. Anyone who obtains a valid medical marijuana recommendation from a doctor can possess or cultivate as much marijuana as is reasonably needed to treat their condition.
As far as California law goes, the main problems medical marijuana users need to watch out for are using marijuana in public, driving while under the influence of marijuana, or selling marijuana without a license. These activities continue to be illegal.
Also, don’t forget that medical marijuana is not legal under federal law. Although federal prosecution of individuals for medical marijuana offenses is rare, it is possible.
