Marijuana Possession Laws in Kalamazoo, MI

Though marijuana is listed in the drug schedules which normally determine the penalties that can apply in criminal cases, there are unique subsections dealing specifically with marijuana possession, which differ from those assigned to other Schedule 1 and Schedule 2 narcotics cases. Marijuana law in Michigan is designed to go easy on users and tough on dealers and grow-ops, but anyone can face serious penalties, especially if large amounts of the drug are involved. If you have been accused of possessing marijuana, it is essential that you work with an attorney to ensure you keep on top of the laws and legal issues you will be facing in your unique case.

Criminal Penalties for Pot Possession in Kalamazoo

While using marijuana can lead to a maximum of up to 90 days behind bars and a $100 fine, possession of marijuana can lead to up to a year behind bars and a possible fine of up to $2,000. Both offenses are misdemeanors.

If larger amounts of the drug are involved, or if a person is accused of possessing marijuana plants rather than processed ingestible marijuana, much more severe penalties can result, with up to 15 years in prison and up to ten million dollars in fines on the line for cases involving very large amounts. Drug possession with intent and drug cultivation are felonies, and there is a huge difference in severity of penalties between misdemeanor possession and felony PWI.
