Drug Diversion for Non-Violent Possession

Certain individuals may qualify for diversion programs for non-violent drug possession. These programs allow the individual to complete drug treatment programs as an alternative to serving time in jail or prison. Once the program is complete, the drug charges can be dismissed by a judge. Our drug possession attorneys in Oakland can discuss whether you are eligible and push for this option if it is in your best interests.

Penalties for Drug Possession & Sale in California

Drug crimes are punished according to the type of drug, the quantity, a defendant's criminal history, and whether special circumstances are involved. For example, sale to minors and sale of certain drugs on places of worship, schools, or youth centers can carry enhanced penalties.

In general, possession and sale charges are punishable by jail time, fines, and a criminal record.
