Attorneys Fighting Health and Safety Code 11357(b) Tickets
With the recent California State “decriminalization” of marijuana possession there has been an increase in amount of marijuana ticket. Local law enforcement still views possession of marijuana as a crime even though California Citizens voted for the various Compassionate Use Acts of the late 90s and early 2000s and Governor Schwarzenegger signed into law SB 1449 that as of 1/1/11, possession of up to one ounce of marijuana is an infraction.
