Proposition 36: Alternative to Jail

Eligibility for a Drug Rehab Programs After an Arrest

Proposition 36 was passed by voters in order to help drug offenders experience full rehabilitation, rather than jail. The Law Office of Christopher P. Welch has a great deal of experience assisting individuals eligible for Proposition 36.

An offender may be eligible for Proposition 36 if:

  • It is their first or second offense AND
  • Their use, possession, or transportation was for personal purposes rather than for sale

Proposition 36 is available for any type of illegal drug. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • marijuana
  • PCP
  • cocaine
  • methamphetamine
  • heroin
  • ecstasy
  • prescription drugs. For marijuana, cultivation charges are also eligible.

This is a highly beneficial program. As one of the conditions for participation the person enrolled will be required to attend a program that specializes in treatment and rehabilitation. Our Ventura criminal defense firm can help you locate an appropriate treatment program.

To find out more about this program, contact the Law Office of Christopher P. Welch today. Our Ventura drug crimes attorney can provide insight and counsel for your case.
