The War On Drugs In Indiana: Drug Possession Laws
Federal and Indiana state laws make it a crime to possess illegal drugs. The charges and penalties for breaking these laws vary depending on the type of drug and the amount in question. The location of the alleged offense can also affect the case. For example, possessing a drug near a school can make the charge more severe. Misdemeanor drug crimes include possession of:
- Controlled substances like marijuana, hashish
- CBD products containing more than 0.3% THC
- Drug paraphernalia like syringes, crack pipes or bongs
Felony drug crimes include possession of:
- Large amounts of marijuana
- Pills and controlled substances without a prescription, including Xanax, Adderall, ecstasy or psychedelic mushrooms
- Cocaine, heroin or methamphetamine
If you are found guilty of a drug possession charge, you may have to pay a fine. The judge is allowed to use his or her discretion with setting the fine. Some fines range as high as $10,000. You may also face jail time. The length of sentences can range from days to weeks to months to years depending on the crime. If you or someone you love has been charged with a crime and is facing drug charges, we have the experience to defend you.
