The primary reason for the seemingly ends stream of difficulties faced by those within the medical marijuana industry stems from the fact that although cannabis is permitted for medical use in California and even decriminalized to an infraction for possession of less than an ounce, it is still illegal to possess of use under federal law. This is a conflicting predicament that has led to countless drug crime arrests and convictions throughout Southern California. From possession to cultivation, transportation, and trafficking the charges that may arise are in every way serious criminal allegations.
