Drug Crimes in California

The Health & Safety Code of California Controls Drug Crimes

Drug crimes are usually charged under the Health & Safety Code 11350 and are prosecuted that way. Prosecutions range from misdemeanor to felony, but the more severe the drug and drug crime, the more likely you are to be punished as a felony. Your prosecutor will be trying to prove that you violated Safety Code 11350 by "possessing" a "controlled substance," and that there was a "usable amount" of the controlled substance in question.
You could be prosecuted for possessing a drug not knowing it is considered a "controlled substance"! 
"Controlled Substances" included but are not limited to the following drugs according to Safety Codes 11350 & 11054 & 110552 & 11056: If prosecutors believe these or other prescription medications are not being used in the manner in which they are prescribed or are possessed without a valid prescription, they can charge you for a drug possession crime.

Grossman have extensive experience researching and strategizing defenses based the Health & Safety Codes of California: we can provide the effective expertise you need when facing your drug crime charges.
