Possession of Marijuana Ticket
Attorneys Fighting Health and Safety Code 11357(b) Tickets
With the recent California State “decriminalization” of marijuana possession there has been an increase in amount of marijuana tickets. Local law enforcement still views possession of marijuana as a crime even though California Citizens voted for the various Compassionate Use Acts of the late 90s and early 2000s and Governor Schwarzenegger signed into law SB 1449 that as of 1/1/11, possession of up to one ounce of marijuana is an infraction.
Marijuana Ticket Attorney
Retaining an attorney early on is key to successfully dismissing a marijuana ticket. Our attorneys have successfully dismissed marijuana tickets at the arraignment when our client has a compassionate use act recommendation. There is even the possibility of getting the ticket dismissed when the recommendation is acquired after the date of violation.
Penalties of Marijuana Tickets
There are 4 primary penalties with marijuana tickets:
- A fine of around $500 for a first offense
- Branded as a marijuana user
- Priorable Offense (second offense increases to misdemeanor)
- One year license suspension for defendant’s under 21 years of age
