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:
The following drugs are illegal to possess without a valid prescription
from a qualified physician:
You could even face drug crime charges for possessing prescription-strength
painkillers and NSAIDs such as aspirin, ibuprofen or naproxen without
a valid prescription.
