- Under the influence of a controlled substance
Driving under the influence of drugs, including marijuana, is a serious charge. In the state of California, it is still illegal to cultivate, sell, possess, or use the controlled substance of marijuana. Under Proposition 215, there are a few exceptions to this law. Additionally, individuals charged with the possession of a small quantity of marijuana will typically only face minimal penalties.
