What You Need to Know About Drug Crimes
California imposes harsh penalties for drug crime convictions. Drug crimes
involve possessing, manufacturing, distributing, selling, trafficking,
and transporting illegal drugs. The charges and penalties vary, depending
on how much of the drug was involved (the weight of the drug), as well
as the type of drug.
If convicted of a drug crime, you may face:
- Prison sentences
- Heavy fines
- Drug rehabilitation programs
Drug crimes may be charged as misdemeanors or felonies. Drugs are divided
into 5 schedules (categories), depending on the health risk and addictive
nature of the each substance. Opiates, cocaine, methamphetamines, hallucinogens,
and narcotic drugs are some of the most commonly abused drugs. If the
crime was committed in the presence of minors, the penalties will increase.
Our San Jose drug crime attorney can investigate the allegations and build
your case as you seek to lessen or drop the charges.
Marijuana Laws in California
In California, medical marijuana is legal with a valid Medical Marijuana
ID card. However, even this is limited. Those found in possession of more
than 28.5 grams of marijuana other than concentrated cannabis may face
penalties of up to 6 months in jail and up to $500 in fines. Our firm
stays current on state and federal drug laws, and can answer your questions
along the way.
