In drug possession cases, the specific penalties you face will depend on the drug possessed, amount possessed, and other details of the case. The most serious penalties are reserved for Schedule I or II substances, which include marijuana, cocaine, LSD, heroin, meth, and other narcotics. Possessing most Schedule 1 or 2 substances can result in up to 4 years in prison and a fine of up to $25,000 for an amount under 25 grams, with penalties as serious as lifetime in prison and a fine of $1,000,000 for amounts over 1 kg. Possession of LSD, peyote, psilocybin, and some other hallucinogenic drugs could result in up to a year in prison and a fine of $2,000, which is the same penalty that can result from marijuana possession.
It is very possible for a simple possession charge to escalate into something much more, especially if you possess a large amount of the drug. Always speak to an attorney as soon as possible to ensure you fight back against harsh accusations and punishment. We will fight to achieve a lessened charge or sentence, and in some cases can even achieve a case dismissal or outright victory.
While the penalties for possession of marijuana, LSD, and other illegal drugs are already serious, depending on the circumstances of your case you may face even harsher criminal penalties. When large amounts of a drug or other case details are involved, you can be accused of possession with intent to sell or deliver, which greatly enhances the potential penalties you could face. While marijuana possession can result in a maximum of one year in prison, possession with intent of an amount under 5 kg or less than 20 plants could land you behind bars for 4 years along with a fine of up to $20,000. Larger amounts could lead to as much as 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000,000.
