Los Angeles Drug Cultivation Defense Lawyer
According to federal law, it is illegal to grow, sell, distribute, transport, possess or traffic marijuana. Most federal cultivation cases that involve marijuana are prosecuted as a felony federal drug crime. A cultivating offense includes possession of marijuana seeds, planting seeds and drying the plants and processing them. Normally, police will charge a individual with cultivation and possession with intent to sell if at least two plants are discovered.
California state law allows marijuana use for medical purposes. However, federal prosecutors can and will pursue criminal charges in a federal court for a marijuana cultivation case.
If you are convicted, you could be facing jail time, probation, large fines and even asset forfeiture of your personal property. Therefore, it is in your best interest to speak with a qualified attorney if you are facing criminal charges.
