Understanding California Proposition 36

California Proposition 36 is the Substance Abuse and Crime Prevention Act of 2000. Commonly known as "prop 36," it allows qualified defendants who have been convicted of non-violent drug possession offenses to avoid incarceration by completing a probationary sentence and meeting certain conditions. Those serving probation are also mandated to complete a drug treatment program. Our firm has successfully helped many clients participate in and complete alternative sentences like these rather than serve jail time.
