California Cannabis Law:  Compliance and Criminal Defense Attorneys

Tully & Weiss know the parameters and pitfalls

Marijuana, which is now referred to as cannabis under California law, has a long and tenuous history with the law.

Legal medicine in the State since 1996, and available recreationally since 2016, the production, distribution, and consumption of cannabis continues to be a delicate legal subject. Especially since cannabis is scheduled as a dangerous drug at the Federal level under the Controlled Substance Act (21 U.S.C. §811).

Local councils, law enforcement, and prosecutors often choose to interject their personal opinions on cannabis,  California law, on the other hand, has long had protections for medical cannabis, and adult adult personal use and commercial production and distribution.

Don't Go to Jail for a Plant

Years of cannabis criminal defense lend themselves to a robust cannabis legal compliance practice. Not only go we aggressively defend clients arrested for marijuana crimes, we also work to help keep growers and vendors within the law so they can avoid arrest in the first place.
