San Jose Marijuana Possession Attorney

California is a state with a highly publicized view on marijuana possession. While medical marijuana is allowed, and the possession of certain amounts of marijuana has been decriminalized, it is very important that people know that there are still types of marijuana charges that can be filed and the possession of marijuana is still a crime.

At the Law Office of Gregory M. Alonzo, I have extensive knowledge of California's drug laws and the laws that govern marijuana possession. If you have been charged with or cited for possession of marijuana, I can review your case and provide you with options for seeking a resolution to the case, whether we fight the charges or work with the prosecution to secure alternative charges and/or punishments.

Contact my office today to schedule a free consultation with me, a San Jose marijuana possession defense lawyer.
