Possession of Marijuana for Sale – 11359 HS

What is Possession of Marijuana for Sale?

Possession of marijauna with intent to sell 11359 HS
The prosecution must prove that you intended to sell the marijuana rather than simply possess the drug.

Possession of marijuana for sale is covered by California Health and Safety Code 11359. In order to convict you of possession of marijuana for sale under 11359 HS, the prosecution must prove that you unlawfully possessed a controlled substance, you knew of its presence, you knew of the substance’s nature or character as a controlled substance, when you possessed the controlled substance you intended to sell it, the controlled substance was marijuana, and the controlled substance was in a usable amount.

The key issues that the prosecution must prove are whether you had actual possession of the marijuana and whether you intended to sell it rather than possess it for your own personal use.

Defenses to a Charge of Possession for Sale California

There are a number of defenses that a drug possession attorney at Wallin & Klarich can raise on your behalf. Your attorney can argue that you lacked possession or control of the marijuana, you only had momentary possession, you lacked knowledge that the substance you possessed was a controlled substance, you had a valid prescription, you lacked the intent to sell or that the police failed to follow required procedures during your arrest or seizure of the marijuana.

Each of these defenses may possibly be raised depending upon the facts of your individual case. Be sure to consult a drug possession lawyer at Wallin & Klarich to learn more.
