What Are The Laws And Penalties For Drug Crimes In The State Of California?
In California, it is a felony to possess cocaine, ecstasy, ketamine, crack, heroin, GHB and even prescription drugs that are not lawfully prescribed. If you are convicted of possession of a controlled substance under California law, you could face up to three years in prison.
Possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell is a felony under California law. A conviction is punishable with up to four years in prison and a fine of up to $20,000.
However, if you have a previous felony conviction for sale or intent to sell a controlled substance, you could face an additional three years in prison.
There are dozens of drug laws in this state. They can be quite complicated, and those with prior convictions can receive harsher penalties. Penalties can also be increased if weapons or minors are involved in a drug crime.
