Medical Marijuana in California

Marijuana has been decriminalized in California since 1975, when Senate Bill 95 passed, making possession of less than 28.5 grams punishable by a $100 fine only. If the person in possession of this quantity of pot is under 18 years of age, the charge is a misdemeanor and sentencing is for 10 days in jail a fine of $250. If this amount is found in possession of an adult (18 and over) on school grounds while school is open, the sentence will be 10 days in jail and a $500 fine.
