Pursuant to California Health and safety code, the possession of marijuana can be a misdemeanor or an infraction. Cultivation, sale and possession of marijuana for sale are felonies. Moreover, there are federal laws that relate to marijuana, and there is no federal recognition of medical marijuana. Marijuana cases frequently involve search and seizure issues. Often times, law enforcement performs search and seizure in violation of the constitution and this can result in the reduction of charges and/or dismissal of the case. Benjamin Zicherman has extensive experience with these issues and know how to create an effective defense.
