Were you charged with distribution of marijuana in California when, in fact, you believe you were operating as a caregiver, within the scope of the California Compassionate Use Act of 1996 (Prop. 215)? Or do you have reason to believe that you will soon be charged? Early intervention by an experienced medical marijuana defense attorney may prevent charges from ever being filed. If charges have already been filed, a vigorous defense may result in a deferred entry of judgment for a number of months — and ultimately, dropping of charges with presentation of a persuasive defense.
You may have been acting as a caregiver for a patient receiving medical marijuana if you can show that you were consistently attending to patients' needs while providing marijuana for their personal use. You are advised to seek representation from a Chico primary caregiver defense attorney with ample experience handling similar cases, often resulting in favorable outcomes.
