In the last few months I have seen a huge increase in the number of arrests for possession of THC oil and cannabis concentrates. Any amount of this substance starts at felony level. Many of my clients are college students who go from having no criminal history to suddenly facing felony charges for possessing a very small amount of cannabis concentrates.
Currently about 3 out of every 4 people who contact me with a felony controlled substance case are charged with possession of concentrates. The popularity of these substances has exploded in the last year.
The biggest problem is how it is codified in the Health and Safety code. It is weighed just like powder substances such as cocaine or methamphetamine, even though it is much more dense and heavy. This means even a small usable amount quickly moves you up the felony ladder.
In most counties I can get a small amount of cannabis concentrate reduced to a misdemeanor but this gets more difficult as the weight increases. If you are charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance contact the Law Office of Lance Turnbow and find out what your options are.
