San Diego Marijuana Crime Lawyers

Aggressive Defense for Marijuana Charges

Marijuana is a controlled substance. It is a plant which is used as an illegal drug. It also has been applied to medical conditions and situations. California and federal regulations regarding this drug are strict and penalties for violating them can be severe depending on several factors, including the amount which may be involved in the crime and whether the individual is a repeat drug offender.

If you are under investigation, have been taken into custody or are facing drug crime charges relating to marijuana, contact a San Diego criminal defense attorney for help. Also at issue are California laws regarding medical marijuana use, which can be used to your advantage as a possible defense.

The Impact of a Marijuana Conviction on Your Record

Consequences to being convicted of marijuana offenses can be heavy, depending on the facts and details surrounding the alleged crime. These consequences are not limited to the direct penalties from sentencing, such as prison time, fines, court-ordered drug treatment programs, restitution and probation. A criminal record goes along with any conviction, and it automatically makes it much more difficult to:

  • obtain a satisfactory job or career,
  • apply for funding secondary education, or
  • secure loans or leasing contracts for housing or vehicle.
