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.
