Ohio Drug Possession & Trafficking Penalties

For the most part, higher drug amounts lead to higher penalties. This is because it is easier for prosecutors to argue that the only reason a person would have a large drug amount in his or her possession would be for the purpose of trafficking or distribution. As a former prosecutor, Attorney Patrick L. Mulligan can use his expert insight to defend you from drug possession or trafficking charges in court. After all, he is one of the 24 Board Certified Criminal Law Specialists in the state. With his help, our legal team will create and implement a defense strategy aimed at shielding you from the full extent of the penalties you face.

In Ohio, marijuana-related possession offenses are penalized as follows:

  • Maximum fine of $150 for less than 100 grams
  • Maximum fine of $250 and 30-day incarceration for 100 to 200 grams
  • Maximum fine of $2,5000 and one-year incarceration for 200 to 1,000 grams
