There are many misconceptions about marijuana law. Under California law, marijuana is still illegal. However, the voter-approved marijuana laws provide patients with an “affirmative defense,” essentially providing valid patients with immunity from prosecution. Federal law still considers marijuana a Schedule I controlled substance, with no medical use allowed.
One of the most contested issues in California is the fact that police departments and law enforcement organizations, along with District Attorneys' Offices statewide, continue to take the position that any and all post-harvest group marijuana activity is illegal. This means that law enforcement can and will arrest you, and the District Attorney has the option to prosecute you. Once you are charged, it is up to you to present your defense and establish immunity under the law. We can help you do that. Additionally, we can communicate with law enforcement agents and prosecutors to prevent unnecessary arrests and prosecutions.
