Criminal Lawyers Fighting State or Federal Marijuana Cultivation Charges
Drug Cultivation is defined as the growing, production, and possession of plants and other naturally occurring elements with the purpose of being used in the creation of illegal controlled substances such as Cannabis seeds and marijuana plants.
A grow house is a property that is primarily used for the production of marijuana. Cultivation of any amount of marijuana is considered a felony in California, and according to section HS 11358 of California's Health and Safety Codes:
- “Every person who plants, cultivates, harvests, dries, or processes any marijuana or any part thereof, except as otherwise provided by law, shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison.”
Drug offenses such as cultivation or possession of a grow house are vigorously prosecuted in California state and federal criminal courts.
More and more of these crimes have begun to appear in recent years, to the point where task forces are being created to specifically handle these types of case.
