The California Health & Safety Code outlaws the cultivation of marijuana.
The only exception is the cultivation of
medical marijuana by a registered dispensary or user for legitimate use.
Creating any type of illegal substance is illegal under California Health
& Safety code and could result in high fines and time in jail or prison,
depending on the amount in question and the severity level of the drug.
One of the main causes of federal involvement in drug crimes is when an
offender attempts to smuggle large quantities of marijuana or narcotics
across state lines, out of the country, or into the United States.
Transporting illegal substances in any way for the purpose of distribution
or sale is known as drug trafficking. This can be performed from person
to person, or using vehicles and other larger forms of transportation.
