Drug Possession Penalties
You can either be charged with misdemeanor possession or felony possession based on the penalty group and the weight or amount of the drug in question. Even less than a gram of a Penalty Group 1 substance is punishable by a state jail felony, which results in a state jail sentence between 180 days and two years, as well as a fine of up to $10,000.
The laws and penalties for possession of marijuana are distinct from other drug possession laws. It is considered a Class B misdemeanor, carrying a sentence of up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $10,000, for possession of two ounces or less of marijuana.
