Throughout the United States, the issue of marijuana cultivation and distribution is currently incredibly complex and convoluted. If you grow even just one small marijuana plant in California without some kind of medical marijuana permit, you will most likely face a hefty punishment if caught. If you have been charged with cultivation of marijuana, you want the best legal in the area working on your case so you don’t get stuck with heavy penalties. Call the Law Offices of Bradley R. Corbett today to see how a San Diego cultivation defense attorney could help with your case.
Here is a brief explanation of what this charge entails and what to do if you have been caught growing marijuana:
First, if you have been charged with cultivation, remember that the prosecution must prove a few key things to get you convicted. They have to establish that you did not possess a medical marijuana plant, that you intended to sell the plants for gain, and that you were growing more than the allowed amount on a prescription permit. A medical marijuana permit allocates a certain amount of allowable plants per prescription, but the plants may not be sold by the possessor. If you do not have a permit, the Penal Code of California prohibits the possession of marijuana seeds, the cultivation of these seeds, and/or the processing of dried cannabis.
