Drug Possession

In California, the laws for drug possession depend on the type of drug and the quantity involved.

Possession of controlled substances such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine, is generally illegal under California law.

Under Proposition 64, adults over 21 are allowed to possess up to one ounce of marijuana and cultivate up to six plants for personal use. However, possession of larger amounts of marijuana or possession of other controlled substances can result in criminal charges.

The penalties for drug possession in California can include fines, probation, community service, and incarceration, depending on the circumstances.

In general, possession of small amounts of drugs may be charged as a misdemeanor, while possession of larger amounts or possession with intent to distribute may be charged as a felony.

The specific penalties for drug possession in California depend on the type and amount of drug, as well as any prior criminal history. It is important to consult with a qualified criminal defense attorney if you are facing drug possession charges in California.
