In the State of California, possession of small quantities of one ounce (28.5 grams) or less of marijuana is a misdemeanor punishable by a $100 fine. Arrest with possession of more than an ounce dictates jail time of up to six months in county jail and / or a maximum fine of $500 according to California Health & Safety Code 11357. Furthermore, if an individual is found who “plants, cultivates, harvests, dries, or processes any marijuana or any part thereof, except as otherwise provided by law, shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison” as per Health & Safety Code 11358.
The distribution or sale of marijuana is considered a felony irregardless of the amount seized by police or undercover agents. Drug trafficking is a serious offense that can result in years of prison time. Often times the decision to prosecute cases for sale of marijuana is based on circumstantial evidence derived from a state or federal law enforcement investigation. Therefore if you or a loved one has been arrested for drug violation in the State of California or local municipality marijuana laws, seek legal counsel and call Orange County Bail Bonds to avoid jail time by posting bail.
