Possession of Marijuana Charges in California
The amount of Marijuana found on a person, in their car or in their general possession can often mean a harsher or lighter penalty. For example, the possession of just one ounce, 28.5 grams or less, of Marijuana can be punishable by a $100 maximum fine. However, the more Marijuana that is found, the higher the chance a person will be charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking the drug; a more serious offense with more serious penalties, as well as stiffer jail time served. Also, the way in which the Marijuana is found to be packaged will weigh-in on the seriousness of the charge. Someone can also be charged with the possession of associated paraphernalia.
In court, if a judge convicts a defendant of felony charges for the possession of Marijuana, they will be stuck with a felony criminal record. If this was their first time being convicted, or if the defendant had less than a total of 30 grams of marijuana on them, the maximum penalty may be a fine of $1,000 or 6 months in jail, or both. However, the penalty for a first time offense is typically much less. A judge can also discharge the case all together.
Marijuana Charges Bail Amounts
The bail amount for possession of Marijuana can be set within each jurisdiction in the state. In cases for the possession of more than one ounce of marijuana, a bail amount of $500 can be typical. In cases for the possession of concentrated marijuana, which may also be known as hash or hashish, a bail amount of $10,000 can be typical. In cases for the possession of marijuana with the intent to sell or distribute the drug, the bail amount can be much higher. Furthermore, if the amount of Marijuana exceeds one pound, bail can often be set upwards of $50,000 to $100,000 or more.
Some defendants may claim to the police and the courts that the possession and use of marijuana was for medicinal purposes. In California, courts may be inclined to grant O.R (own recognizance) instead of requiring the arrestee to post bail for the offense. A medical marijuana I.D card and the defendant’s prescribing physician’s original medical affidavit will be required to be shown at the defendant’s court hearing.
