California Health and Safety Code sections 11350 through 11391 and Title 18 of the United States Codes criminalize a plethora of activity related to controlled substances. These statutes, even the ones criminalizing minor possession, have placed many otherwise upstanding citizens on the front line of the government’s war on drugs. Although there has been a recent trend supporting treatment over jail time, there are a series of hoops that one must jump through to take advantage of the various programs available.
The passage of California’s Prop. 215 (Medical Marijuana) and Prop. 36 (Treatment Alternative for First Time Offenders) have provided options for citizens who find themselves charged with narcotics offenses. However, understanding the parameters of these options and pursuing their benefits are often difficult for ordinary persons with a cursory knowledge of the many intricacies of such programs.
