How is marijuana cultivation punished?
All aspects of cultivation of marijuana are illegal in California unless
permitted for medical purposes. In these cases, a certified physician
must provide approval. If you are arrested for cultivation, your penalties
will depend on the amount of marijuana found and any past criminal activity
on your record.
However, you may be charged with the following penalties:
- Up to 3 years in prison
- Fines up to $10,000
- Felony conviction
Because medical marijuana is legal in the state of California, people who
cultivate the drug for medical use may be exempt from felony charges that
others would face if growing plants illegally.
The guidelines regarding medical marijuana cultivation are constantly changing
and it is important to stay updated on all relevant court decisions and
opinions. These decisions and opinions continually change the defenses
that are available to medical marijuana patients and can be beneficial
in reducing or dismissing charges you may face.
