New 2011 California Laws

January 1, 2011 – New laws have taken effect in California this year. These include:

Marijuana – Possession of less than an ounce of marijuana is now classified as an infraction, which is a similar to a parking ticket. A person may still receive a $100 fine but offense cannot be included on a person’s criminal record.
Motorcycles – Any person under the age of 21 years who wishes to obtain an instruction permit must first complete a motorcycle safety course. This permit is required to be held for six months before a class M motorcycle license is issued.
Impersonating someone online – California laws regarding impersonation online have been updated: It is now a misdemeanor to harm, intimidate, threaten, or defraud a person while impersonating someone else through email or a social networking site.
Truancy – Enforcement agencies are now permitted to file a misdemeanor charge against parents of truant elementary school children if it is determined that the parents did not reasonably supervise their children and encourage them to attend school.
