Ventura Drug Crimes Attorney

California Drug Schedule Laws

With the nationwide push to decriminalize marijuana, drug laws in California are in a state of flux. Under federal law, marijuana is still considered a Schedule 1 Drug, meaning it cannot be used for clinical or recreational use. Given that California, and many other states, have legalized marijuana for both medical and recreational use, this can make the laws very confusing for anyone who has been charged with a drug offense.

There are two types of criminal charges: federal and state. Under federal law, marijuana is still illegal and you can be charged with possession by a DEA agent. However, California state law permits its use and therefore you cannot be arrested by local law enforcement for possession.

Our Ventura drug crime attorney handles drug offenses that include:

  • Possession
  • Distribution and intent to distribute
  • Manufacturing
  • Trafficking
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Dealing

There are many degrees of drug offenses. While some are considered misdemeanors with minimal jail time, others can be charged as felonies with severe prison sentences. No matter what type of drug charge you are facing, you will want a knowledgeable Ventura drug crime lawyer representing you.
