Solano County Marijuana Distribution Lawyer
Distribution of Marijuana Defense Lawyer in Fairfield
In California, a person will be charged with distribution of marijuana if they knowingly transport, import, sell, furnish, administer, or give away any amount of marijuana. A person can also face marijuana distribution charges for offering to transport, import, sell, furnish, administer or give away any amount of marijuana. This means that a person can still be criminally prosecuted for the crime, even if he or she never actually carried out the offense. The penalties for distribution of marijuana depend on the quantity of marijuana involved.
Distributing less than 28.5 grams (one ounce) of marijuana is a misdemeanor offense, and is punishable by no more than a $100 fine. Distributing more than 28.5 grams of marijuana is a felony, and is punishable by up to four years in prison, fines, mandatory drug counseling, probation, community service, and more. In addition, a person may face enhanced penalties for distributing marijuana in a school zone or near a playground, church, or some other religious establishment.
