Under California Health and Safety Code 11362.5 or the Compassionate Use Act, there are exceptions to the use of marijuana that are authorized as legal. Charges for possession of marijuana or cultivation of marijuana do not apply to patients or the primary caregivers of patients if it is for a medical purpose. The medical purpose must be approved either orally or in writing by a physician.
Unfortunately, even with those laws in place, innocent individuals and medical marijuana dispensaries come under fire from law enforcement agencies. As a result, you could face serious felony drug charges for violating California's drug laws. Without an experienced Oakland criminal defense lawyer on your side, you could face significant time in prison for these crimes.
The experienced Oakland marijuana defense lawyers at The Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed have handled defenses against all types of charges related to medical marijuana, including:
Proposition 215 of Health & Safety Code Section 11362.5, California's Compassionate Use Act, makes it legal for patients and their designated primary caregivers to possess and cultivate marijuana to treat their medically approved illnesses. In 2004, this law was expanded (SB420) to allow patients to form collective farms or cooperatives in order to grow their own medical marijuana. SB420 also established guidelines on how much marijuana a patient can be in possession of; as well as, how much they are allowed to grow. As long as you stay within these guidelines, you are protected from criminal conviction.
