Is Marijuana Legal in Oakland, CA?

On November 8, 2016, California voters said “Yes” to Proposition 64, paving the way for the recreational use of pot by adults. Adults are defined as being persons 21 years of age or older. California's marijuana law also makes it legal for weed to be sold in the state but only by licensed businesses. Therefore, anyone caught in possession of marijuana, in excess of a few ounces, or marijuana that is separated out into baggies for individual sale or distribution, can still be charged with violating Health and Safety Code 11359, if they do not also have a license to sell Marijuana in California. This code provides criminal penalties for people caught carrying, transporting, or selling marijuana without a license.

Can I be Arrested for Carrying Cannabis in Oakland?

Since it is legal to use Marijuana, for medical or recreational reasons, you won't be arrested simply for having marijuana on your person. However, if the authorities can make a case that you are carrying marijuana, with the intent to sell it to someone else, or that you were intending to share it with someone underage, you can be arrested and charged with several different crimes, depending on the circumstances.

How Much Is Bail in Alameda County?

To find out how much bail is required to get out of jail, a person should ask to see the Bail Schedule. There should be a copy of the county bail schedule posted at every jail facility, but if there isn't one available, you can locate it here

To Calculate Bail:

  • Begin with the primary charge. This is generally the charge that carries the highest possible jail time and bail amount.
  • Add all enhancements.
  • Add any special circumstances.

This total is the amount that will be required to bail a person out of jail. Bail can be paid in cash or cashier's check, or property can be used as bond. If a property is used, however, the equity of the property must be quite a bit more than the amount of the bail.

Anyone can pay the bail for someone else to get out of jail. However, many people lack the cash funds to be able to just post bail out of pocket. This is where a bail bond company can be useful.

How to Get Out of Jail in Oakland, California

For many people, it can be difficult to come up with the entire amount of money that is due for bail. Not only is a great deal of money involved, but that money will be tied up with the court system for a long time. Some cases can take over a year to come to an end. After the case has ended, it can sometimes take some time to get the money back from the court system.

Most people, facing a substantial amount of bail, just don't have the cash to pay the bail outright. A person can post property as a form of bail, but the amount of value in the property has to be double the value of the bail being sought. Often, it's easier to get help from a bail bondsman like Mr. Nice Guy (844)400-2245.

How Much are Bail Bonds in Oakland?

The state of California requires that all bail bond companies charge 10% of the total amount of bail, in order to post bond for a defendant. The rates are set by statute, and all bail bond companies are required to charge the same amount.

California law allows for a discounted rate on bail bonds if the defendant retains a private attorney and pays the premium in full within 72 hours. These discounts are allowed for government union workers, members of the military, and AARP members. These discounts are determined by the surety company that is writing the bonds for the bail bond company.

Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds uses a Surety Company that allows them to discount bail bonds to just 7% if the defendant retains a private attorney and pays the premium within the first 72-hours. There's no lower rate available, anywhere.
