Marijuana Crimes in CA

Zealous Advocacy from Riverside Marijuana Defense Attorneys

In 2005, 42.6 percent of all drug arrests in the United States were for marijuana and 88 percent of those arrests were for possession alone, according Crime in America: FBI Uniform Crime Reports 2005.

Even though arrests for pot are common, they can disrupt your life today and limit your future options. If you have been arrested for any marijuana-related crime, contact our Riverside marijuana defense lawyers at Blumenthal & Moore located in Riverside, California. We know what it takes to protect your rights as we help you navigate the legal system.

Our goal is to minimize the negative consequences of all marijuana-related charges, including:

  • Possession of marijuana or hashish
  • Possession with intent to sell
  • Cultivation
  • Distribution/transportation/trafficking
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Juvenile possession
  • Possession while on school property
  • Possession while carrying a firearm

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.

Live answering service available 24/7 for emergency consultations.
