The possession of 1 ounce (28.5 grams) or less of marijuana is a misdemeanor. Conviction will result in a fine of not more than $100. For possession of more than an ounce, the sentence will be $500 and up to 6 months in jail. As the charges become more serious, so too do the penalties.
Proven Results for Tough Drug Crimes
Our Riverside criminal defense attorneys can work hard seeking to get the charges against you reduced or dismissed. We will determine if you are eligible for Prop 36 or other formal or informal diversion programs. We will question whether the evidence against you was obtained legally and whether your rights were violated.
Whether you were charged with possessing marijuana for medical purposes without a medical marijuana card or of maintaining a hydroponic indoor growing operation, we know how to help. Want to clear your record of an old possession conviction? We can assist you with that, too. Contact us today for a no-charge consultation.
