Penalties for Marijuana Offenses
It is illegal to possess, use, cultivate, sell, or distribute marijuana
in Ohio. The penalties for a conviction can be either a misdemeanor or
felony, depending upon the quantity involved. A possession conviction
could result in penalties of up to 30 days in jail and fines up to $250
for a misdemeanor or as much as 8 years in prison and fine up to $15,000
for a felony. If convicted of cultivating pot, the misdemeanor penalties
range from 30 days in jail and a $150 fine to felony sentencing of 10
years in prison. Trafficking in marijuana has similar penalties to cultivating.
If charged with possession, it means that you were found to have the drug
on you personally or that you had access to it. Cultivating means you
are growing a single pot plant or operating a full-scale grow house, with
a quantity of 20 kilograms or more.
