Possession Of Marijuana
As with possession of marijuana, delivery of marijuana can be a felony or a misdemeanor depending upon the amount of marijuana alleged to have been delivered. The punishment ranges are below.
- Class B misdemeanor if one-fourth of an ounce or less and the person alleged to have delivered the marijuana does not receive remuneration for the marijuana
- Class A misdemeanor if one-fourth of an ounce or less and the person alleged to have delivered the marijuana does receive remuneration for the marijuana
- 4th degree (state jail) felony if more than one-fourth of an ounce and no more than 5 pounds
- 2nd degree felony if more than 5 pounds and no more than 50 pounds
- 1st degree felony if more than 50 pounds and less than 2,000 pounds
- Enhanced 1st degree felony with a minimum term of imprisonment of 10 years if more than 2,000 pounds
Delivery of marijuana cases are more dangerous than possession cases due to the suggestion that the defendant is “dealing drugs.” These cases are very dangerous. If you are charged with delivery of marijuana, you need an experienced and effective drug lawyer at your side.
