If it is under 1 ounce but your doctor card is expired? Does hash make it more severe a violation in the state of California?

There is another answer that indicates that "If you had hash rather than MJ it makes a difference." Maybe, but not necessarily correct for medical marijuana.
The Attorney General's opinion on the hash question is that hash (concentrated cannabis) IS covered by the medical marijuana laws.
Possession of concentrated cannabis outside of a doctor's recommendation is treated a little differently. Possession of hash is under 11357(a) of the Health and Safety code. Possession of any concentrated cannabis can be a felony or a misdemeanor. You really need a lawyer.
Your issue is that your doctor's recommendation had lapsed. For you, it will depend on how long it had lapsed, whether or not you have it reinstated, how much hash you had and any prior record.
