Medical Marijuana Lawyer in Bakersfield

You May Be Protected Under Proposition 36

With the passage of Proposition 36, state laws changed to allow certain individuals who have been arrested for a non-violent drug crime - such as medical marijuana possession - to receive probation instead of jail time. Under this statute, the individual can attend alternative sentencing programs, including the completion of a community drug treatment program, rather than serving a jail time sentence, paying expensive fines, or other penalties.
