Understanding California’s Medical Marijuana Laws
It is important to understand what is and isn’t a crime in our state. In the state of California marijuana can be used for medical purposes when recommended by a licensed physician.
Once a patient has received a permit, they would have the right to buy and possess small amounts of medical marijuana from a legitimate dispensary. Used for personal use only. Possession of a medical card does not give someone the right to sell, or share medical marijuana.
Each individual state maintains their own laws regarding marijuana use—which subsequently means that the use of medical marijuana is only legal in the state in which it has been obtained. If, for example, you possess a legitimate medical card in the state of California, but you are found to be in possession of this drug in another state, you could still be subjected to criminal charges. For this reason, it is important to understand your rights. If you have been charged with a drug crime involving marijuana, speak with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
