Simple Possession of Marijuana

Type of Crime:
Crimes Involving Marijuana
California law differentiates between simply possessing marijuana, possessing marijuana for sale, and selling marijuana. The crime of simple possession of marijuana (for personal use) is defined as the knowing and unlawful possession of more than one ounce (28.5 grams) of marijuana. While possession of only one ounce of marijuana is only punishable by a fine of up to $100, if you are convicted of possessing more than one ounce of marijuana, you may face up to six months in county jail or a fine of up to $500, or both.
The crime of possession of marijuana for sale is a felony and is defined as the knowing possession of a usable amount of marijuana with the intent to sell it. If convicted of the crime of possession of marijuana for sale, you may face a sentence of up to 3 years in state prison and a fine of up to $10,000. However, police officers often mistake simple marijuana possession for a marijuana sale waiting to happen. Since such a mistake may result in severe penalties for the accused, it is imperative that if charged with the crime of possession of marijuana for sale you retain the services of a knowledgeable and experienced criminal defense attorney.
