Fighting All Marijuana Charges
The attorneys at The Law Offices of Bruce M. Margolin, Esq. have extensive experience representing clients facing all types of marijuana-related charges, including:
- Possession: Penalties for possession of marijuana vary, based on the amount of marijuana in question and previous convictions. Also, possession of hashish can result in a felony conviction.
- Sale: Possession with intent to sell is a felony in California and can result in prison time, fines and the loss of your driver’s license (if you are under 21).
- Transportation and trafficking: If it is less than an ounce of marijuana, then transportation is a misdemeanor offense. Larger amounts can result in a felony conviction.
- Cultivation and grow houses: Growing cannabis can result in a felony conviction with prison time and fines. If you are under 21, you could also lose your license for a year.
- Medical marijuana: While marijuana use for medicinal purposes is now legal in California, it is still possible to be unjustly arrested for a marijuana-related crime.
- Driving under the influence (DUI): Just like drunk driving, it is possible to be convicted for driving under the influence of marijuana. This can lead to fines, a restricted driver’s license and possible jail time.
