Los Angeles Medical Marijuana Attorneys | LA Drug Crime Attorneys

In 1996, the state of California enacted the Compassionate Use Act outlined in §11362.5 of the Health and Safety Code. This was created to provide those with illness in California with the ability to legally obtain marijuana to use for medicinal purposes. This is because the use of marijuana has been found to help those who are suffered from cancer, anorexia, AIDS, chronic pain, arthritis and other painful illnesses. One of the most important aspects of this act is the fact that it exempts patients who have been lawfully prescribed marijuana from criminal charges relating to possession, cultivation and other drug crimes as long as they can prove that they have been given either written or oral recommendation.
