Case #: E031600
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 4 DCA
Division: 2
Citation: 107 Cal.App.4th 888

Appellant, a minor, was found in violation of the conditions of his probation for possessing two bongs, which he admitted he used to smoke marijuana. The bongs tested positive for cannabinoids, compounds containing THC. Here, the appellate court reversed the order revoking appellant’s probation. The Legislature decriminalized the possession of a device for smoking marijuana in 1975, and it is not a crime in California.
