Pursuant to SB 420 and Prop. 215, Californians with serious medical conditions may, with the recommendation of a physician, consume, possess, transport, cultivate and share marijuana with other qualified patients.
Despite these laws, many police and prosecutorial agencies do not understand and recognize these rights. A simple example would be that despite having a valid physician recommendation with you, you may still be arrested. As such, many patients are prosecuted for lawful behavior. Under these circumstances, it is critical to have experienced attorneys that are well versed and familiar with medical marijuana laws. At the Law Offices of Benjamin Zicherman, I am effective in educating law enforcement about your rights as a valid patient.
If you, a family member or friend has been charged with any medical marijuana offense early representation is the key to a successful defense.
