The Laws for Possession
Unless the cannabis you have in your possession is a low-THC oil, you could be charged with a crime. Sentences will depend on how much you have in your possession and whether or not you had intent to sell.
If you are convicted of marijuana possession, you could face:
- Under 2 oz.: Class B misdemeanor with a jail sentence of up to 180 days and fines of up to $2,000
- Between 2-4 oz.: Class A misdemeanor with a jail sentence of up to a year and fines of up to $4,000
- Between 4 oz. and 5 lbs.: State jail felony with a jail sentence of up to 2 years and fines of up to $10,000
Once the possession amount reaches over five pounds, you face felony sentences that are much more serious. While there are legal groups working to make criminal penalties surrounding marijuana less severe, the current punishments could have devastating effects on your future.
