Types of Drug Crimes

The most common drug charges in Ohio involve marijuana. While Ohio has decriminalized the possession of marijuana, this does not mean that you won't be penalized. Your first offense could be dismissed if you were found in possession of a small amount of marijuana for your own personal use, but you could face a misdemeanor for possessing larger amounts, or for possession with intent to distribute marijuana to another person.

Possession of larger amounts of marijuana or trafficking marijuana across state lines is treated as a felony. Possession of 200 or more grams of marijuana is a felony, as is trafficking, distributing or selling any amount of marijuana. You could face 6 months or more in jail or prison.

In Ohio, the following types of drugs are illegal to possess, sell, distribute, traffic, or manufacture in any amount:

  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamine
  • Ecstasy
  • PCP

The following drugs are illegal to possess without a valid prescription from a qualified physician:

  • Amphetamine
  • Codeine
  • Hydrocodone
  • Morphine
  • Vicodin

You could even face drug crime charges for possessing prescription-strength painkillers and NSAIDs such as aspirin, ibuprofen or naproxen without a valid prescription.
