Hi, I had my medical marijuana prescription till DEC.2009.
I had less than gram in my car on March/2010 but my medical card was expired. I got ticket (2322B). I am a California resident with green card. Am I going to lose my green card because of a misdemeanor? What should I do?
Criminal Defense Attorney
Any drug offense, even a low level marijuana one has potential immigration consequences. Because of your situation, it's worth it to consult a criminal defense attorney in your area to represent you and see if there is an alternative to a conviction they can work out - a diversion program, deferred entry of judgment, etc.
DUI / DWI Attorney
Because the immigration issue is federal, you want to be careful. Feds don't recognize CA med mj immunity. Get a new card. Take it to your arraignment. You may be able to get the charge dismissed.
