  • The amount of the drug in your possession
  • The purpose for possessing the drug

Any of these charges can lead to steep fines and incarceration. Dod Law, APC, will advocate for you.

The Marijuana Question

In 2018, California became the sixth state to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Adults who are 21 or older may purchase and possess up to 28.5 grams of marijuana, up to 8 grams of cannabis concentrate and as many as six live plants. For people between the ages of 18 and 20, you may purchase and possess up to 8 ounces of marijuana and 12 live plants; however, only through California's medical marijuana program.

Even with this new state law, a drug possession charge is possible if you have more than 28.5 grams of marijuana. In addition, marijuana continues to be illegal under federal law, and you risk arrest and conviction by federal authorities.
