The Severe Penalties For Drug Possession
The severity of a drug charge will primarily depend on the amount of the drug in question. For example, possession of 2 ounces of marijuana or less is a misdemeanor, which can result in up to a 180-day jail sentence and a maximum $2,000 fine. Possession of 4 ounces of marijuana or more is significantly more serious and carries the possibility of up to two years in jail and a $10,000 fine.
