Marijuana Possession is Still Illegal in Some Cases in California
Laws surrounding marijuana possession have undergone vast changes in the past couple of years. In California, illegal possession of marijuana is usually punishable by a fine. The fine is typically $100 along with other court fees. However, if you are under 21 and possess marijuana, you can lose your license for one year.
If you have more than an ounce of marijuana when you are arrested, the charge can be filed as a misdemeanor. If you are carrying less than 28.5 grams of marijuana, you may not be arrested as long as you have proper identification. Courts propose a deferred entry of judgment program (DEJ) and it is very uncommon for first time offenders to get any jail time. With skillful legal representation, charges for a simple possession can often be diminished and eventually dismissed.
