You might know me as the guy constantly telling you to “shut the fuck up” when you get pulled over on suspicion of marijuana charges on TikTok.
I know a thing or two about getting cannabis crimes dismissed off of our client’s records here in California as one half of Pot Brothers at Law. We are a law firm based in California who assist people in getting their cannabis businesses up and running! We also are passionate about fighting cannabis convictions and defending our clients for what is right and just.
The first video we posted as Pot Brothers at Law was a hit. It was with the hashtag #STFU explained a script for people to use in order to remember not to talk to the police and preserve their rights.
It went viral – being posted by the likes of P. Diddy and Snoop Dogg.
Today on High at 9 News, I joined to discuss the phenomenal work that we do to help people avoid cannabis convictions as well as the California penal code that resident cannabis consumers should get to know, and more to watch from me as Pot Brothers at Law begins to make waves in 2023.
Passion for Dismissing Cannabis Convictions to Free People From Injustice
On today’s episode, we discussed how as an attorney at Pot Brothers at Law, I work to show that my clients are eligible for conviction diversions.
I was actually one of the first attorneys in Los Angeles county to get a cannabis DUI diverted from a client’s record. The client was a single mother who was driving home one day, made a stop at a dispensary, and was then followed and pulled over by a cop shortly before she arrived at her residence.
Our firm successfully argued that the cannabis aspect to this DUI is actually very different from traditional alcohol. We made the defense that this offense towards my client should not have a long-lasting impact from this misdemeanor.
We’re Saving Cannabis Consumers with this California Penal Code
At Pot Brothers at Law, we are on top of the game when it comes to California Penal Code Section 1001.95.
Section B states:
“A judge may continue a diverted case for a period not to exceed 24 months and order the defendant to comply with terms, conditions, or programs that the judge deems appropriate based on the defendant's specific situation.”
There are so many attorneys in the state of California that are not keeping on top of this penal code. Promise me, you do not want an attorney like that when trying to get free of a cannabis conviction. These misdemeanors can be dismissed by following a certain system that is set forth by the judge.
Just two days ago, we got a case dismissed. It was a situation where the person had 100 pounds of cannabis in his car when he was pulled over by police. You know what he did?
He shut the fuck up.
Because he did that and contacted us for representation, we were able to get this case as a misdemeanor count. The prosecution made claims that the client was an international drug dealer. We successfully argued that the weight does not matter and that this case simply falls under a count of a misdemeanor.
Working to Earn That Dismissal in Court for a Cannabis Crime
At the end of the day, there is no way to show that defendants are impaired from THC.
For example, the client who was leaving the dispensary and was pulled over. She had just purchased the products and drove to her house. She was nowhere near in the wrong for this situation. She was the right kind of person — no record, single working parent.
This misdemeanor would have had a huge impact on her life. We had to work to earn dismissal, but damn it was worth it.
In a situation where the judge is willing to divert your case for a period that cannot exceed 24 months. The judge will order the defendant to comply with the terms or programs that the judge has deemed appropriate based on the specific circumstances.
