The laws are changing rapidly under Health and Safety Code Section 11362.5, the medical marijuana provision. Due to the conflict between state and federal laws, many citizens are still being wrongly detained and charged for non-crimes related to medical marijuana.
Attorneys Glew & Kim are dedicated to the reform of marijuana laws through organizations such as the Marijuana Policy Project, NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws), and Americans for Safe Access.
Attorney Christopher Glew has focused his career on criminal defense for narcotics offenses. He is a frequent writer and student of drug law and policy, specializing in cultivation, possession and sale of marijuana. He has defended hundreds of cases under Proposition 215.

To Protect Your Rights, You Must Know Your Rights.
When you are arrested for any crime, felony or misdemeanor, you need to remember these five commandments:
You have the right to remain silent- USE IT!
The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees your right to free from unreasonable search and seizure. Always request to see a copy of a search warrant and realize that if the police have no warrant they will seek your consent to search. If you give them consent you have waived your fourth amendment rights. This gives the police the discretion to invade your privacy.
You have the right to speak with an attorney. If you ever in doubt as to any question or instruction given to you in the course of an investigation utilize this right.
You have the right to trial in most cases. Many lawyers go to great lengths to avoid taking their cases to trial, perhaps reassigning them to associate attorneys or hastily recommending guilty pleas. WE WILL TRY YOUR CASE!
You have the right to be free from unreasonable bail. Always consult with an attorney before posting bail to determine the reasonableness of bail. Remember, you are entitled to a bail hearing.
