Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced criminal lawyer.
Unfortunately, California's Proposition 47 allows for the reduction of certain low level drug felonies only. Only drug possessory convictions involving personal use amounts would be eligible for Proposition 47 retroactive reclassification to misdemeanors.
I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news and ask you to kindly refrain from shooting the messenger.
