The short answer is yes. Possession of nitrous oxide in California--for recreational, non-medical purposes--is a crime under Penal Code 381b PC.

If you dump garbage, waste, or other material on public or private property in California, it could cost you plenty.

If you're on probation in California, you no doubt want your probationary period to end sooner rather than later. California law provides judges with the power to set the length of probation as well as modify the terms of probation. As such, judges can shorten the length of probation for individuals who file a motion with the court requesting early termination.

A law effective January 1, 2016 makes it a crime to carry a concealed firearm on a school or college campus. Even if you have a valid California permit to carry a concealed firearm, you could still be arrested and charged with a crime if you bring your weapon to a school or campus.

In 2015, Oregon became the latest state, and the first state bordering California, to legalize recreational marijuana. Nevada may soon follow. If you are visiting Oregon - or Washington state or Colorado - and buy some pot, you are well within your legal rights to do so. If you bring some of your pot home with you to California, however, you can face both state and federal criminal charges.

You may have heard of people being hit with California felony penalties for shoplifting items from a store--and may have wondered if this can really happen.
