Prop 47 and Decriminalization of Recreational Marijuana

Drugs are categorized by schedules in the eyes of the law, depending on the legality of the schedule you are being punished for the penalties can be more severe, or even less severe. Schedules are also a federal statute, many states have sought to amend; California being one such state.

As of 2014, many drug possession charges have become misdemeanor offenses depending on the circumstances that surrounded the arrest in question. Typical the exception to this proposition is if law enforcement officer believe that the individual possessing the illegal drug intended to sell the drug. This can result in a “possession for sale” or “purchase for the purpose of sale” charge that carries stricter penalties.

If you were already imprisoned for drug possession before the amendment was passed you may petition for resentencing, unless you were convicted of other crimes that include murder and sex crimes among others.

Furthermore, in 2016 California decriminalized marijuana usage under proposition 64, this granted adults 21 and over the ability to purchase and use marijuana within their private residence. This includes up to 28.5 grams of marijuana that is un-concentrated and 8 grams of marijuana that is concentrated.
