In most circumstances, it is illegal to be in possession of marijuana. Some people are unaware of how serious it can be to be caught with drugs in California. What may seem like a minor pot possession, can lead to a criminal record that will haunt you forever. A lawyer who has experience with these types of cases can aggressively defend you. In fact, they can usually prevent any criminal charges against you.

The police as well as the court in California tend to aggressively punish people who are illegally in possession of marijuana. Although California is on the liberal side when it comes to marijuana laws, you can still be punished harshly if you are unauthorized to be in possession of the substance. Being in possession of more than 1 oz, can appear as intent to distribute, leading to more serious charges.

Immediately seek help from a skilled criminal defense attorney if you or a loved one has been arrested on a marijuana possession charge.

Your need for a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney dramatically increases if a prosecutor can prove you intended to distribute the marijuana. Upon conviction of intent to sell, you will face felony charges and jail time. Numerous factors will affect your conviction including the amount of cash on you at the time of the arrest as well as recent phone calls in your calling log. Proof lies upon the prosecutor, making it crucial to have a skilled lawyer argue these factors.
