Steven Hughes was convicted of cultivating marijuana (a violation of California Health & Safety Code § 11358), possession of marijuana for sale (a violation of California Health & Safety Code § 11359), and transportation of less than 28.5 grams of marijuana (a violation of California Health & Safety Code § 11360).
His conviction followed a traffic stop wherein his vehicle registration had expired more than six months earlier. When this is the case, police may impound the car. Pursuant to impounding the vehicle, the officers found thirty-eight small marijuana plants. Hughes claimed he was transporting the small plants to a collective at the time, from which he would receive in exchange, medicinal marijuana for his donation.
Riverside County trial judge Timothy Freer granted Hughes formal probation for a period of three years, conditioned on terms that he could not possess medical marijuana pursuant to a valid medical marijuana prescription for treatment of pain.
