Drug Crime Penalties in California

Though California’s drug laws are more lenient than many other states’ laws, those convicted of a drug crime may still face serious penalties. You may be facing thousands of dollars in fines, jail time, and the loss of personal rights. Additionally, having a criminal record may inhibit your ability to find employment, secure housing, or attend college. Whether you are facing a misdemeanor or a felony, you must take your charges seriously.
