Most clients that have been charged with possession of marijuana under HS11350(A) with small amounts have had their charges dropped or not perused by the district attorney. A major reason for that is our clients bail out of jail not giving the police time to interview them to build their case. It's important to remember that even though it is the current trend not to pursue the case for the district attorney, that could all change at any moment if the DA feels he has a strong case against you. It's always best to keep quiet, bail out and seek some legal advice regarding your case. As a licensed bail agent we are prohibited by law from referring an attorney to our clients. We are experts at bail and know our way around the local jails but, when it comes to legal advise you must seek a licensed Attorney's counsel.

Updated as of 11/2014 :
California voters passed a measure that states: Requires misdemeanor sentence instead of felony for certain drug and property offenses. Inapplicable to persons with prior conviction for serious or violent crime and registered sex offenders. Fiscal Impact: State and county criminal justice savings potentially in the high hundreds of millions of dollars annually. State savings spent on school truancy and dropout prevention, mental health and substance abuse treatment, and victim services.
Let's see how this will play out. As of now this is a win as far as your FREEDOM is concern. You now have a little less chance of being arrested in the state of California.
