Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would be glad to assist you with your question, but need a bit of information from you, if you do not mind,
1. In what State do you contemplate being pulled over ?
2. Are you referring to local police officers or Federal ?
Who told you that you would be immune from arrest and prosecution if you were found with more than would be necessary for personal use ?
I consulted with a California criminal defense attorney whose practice concentrates on medical marijuana defenses and he says that delivery of medical marijuana is still a grey area in California. A job in which you would be delivering a small amount of marijuana from one dispensary to patients of that particular dispensary (and not transporting pounds of marijuana from say, the growers in Northern California to dispensaries in Los Angeles) will probably not get you into trouble. You should make sure that the dispensary for which you are making these deliveries have secured local permission so that you can carry that information with you in case you get pulled over. He said that trying to explain the legality of your delivery to the local police is not going to get you very far, even if you hold a medical marijuana card for yourself. It is best to carry the dispensary's local permission information with you because that will speak volumes and why take a chance on trying to explain your way out of it, if you can simply show the local police the dispensary's permission to deliver to patients and you work for the dispensary,
