In California, Health and Safety Code section 11359 makes it a felony for anyone to unlawfully possess marijuana for sale. This crime is punishable by imprisonment for up to three years in state prison. Actual sales or offers to sell can result in imprisonment up to seven years in state prison. Possession means that a person has physical custody and control over the substance. The prosecution can establish this element of the offense by proving that marijuana was found in a vehicle or home that belonged to the defendant.
A conviction for possession of marijuana for sale may result in a sentence for up to three years in state prison. Moreover, every person 18 years of age or over who offers to give any marijuana to a minor 14 years of age or older will be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for up to five years. In addition, an adult defender may be facing up to seven years in state prison when he or she is convicted of selling marijuana to a minor.
