What sort of punishment am I facing?
Punishments for marijuana crimes depend on the quantity found in an individual’s possession.
Penalties for a marijuana possession conviction can include:
- Less than 1 ounce–$150 fine
- Between 1 oz. and 1 kg—Up to 1 Year in jail and $500 fine
- Between 1 and 5 kg—10 to 50 years in jail and $500,000 fine
- More than 5 kg—25 years to life in jail and $100,000
If you are found with more than 1 kilogram of marijuana in your possession, you will be charged with a felony for possession with intent to distribute. This crime carries enhanced penalties.
You can experience further penalties for possessing marijuana while driving, including a driver’s license suspension for up to 6 months.
Each additional conviction for possession of marijuana will increase the punishment. Penalties double for a second offense and triple for a third offense.
