What could I be charged with for transporting marijuana?
Unfortunately, California laws treat the transportation and sale of marijuana
harshly. Possession of just one ounce (28.5 grams) or less is considered
illegal and can include fines and time in prison. In order for marijuana
to be qualified for medical use, an individual needs a physician's approval.
You may face the following penalties for marijuana transportation and sale:
- Felony conviction on your record
- Minimum of 2 and up to 7 years in prison
- Minimum fines of $100
If you involve a minor in illegal marijuana or transportation sales, it
is considered an automatic felony and may result in a more serious prison
sentence. Transportation crimes are often discovered during routine or
targeted traffic enforcement activity by police officers. An officer must
have legitimate cause to search your vehicle, even if they suspect that
marijuana is inside. If there was no valid reason or you feel your rights
were violated in a search and seizure, contact drug crimes lawyer right away.
