What are the Penalties for Drug Crimes in Mississippi?
Mississippi law divides controlled substances into five schedules or levels. Schedule I contains drugs that are considered to be the most dangerous and have no medicinal value. On the other end of the spectrum, Schedule V drugs are the least dangerous and can often be used for medical purposes.
The consequences for the different levels of drug crimes include:
- Schedule I and II: A maximum of 30 years in prison and/or a fine between $5,000 to $1,000,000
- Schedule III and IV: A maximum of 20 years in prison and/or a fine between $1,000 to $250,000
- Schedule V: A maximum of 10 years in prison and/or a fine between $1,000 to $50,000
There is an exception to this rule when the crime involves minimal possession of marijuana. Possession of fewer than 30 grams of marijuana is a misdemeanor offense. The penalty imposed for a marijuana misdemeanor is determined by how many previous convictions a person has for that type of offense.
The penalties for minimal possession of marijuana include:
- First Offense: $250 fine
- Second Offense: $20 fine and 5 to 60 days in prison
- Third Offense: $250 fine and 5 days to 6 months in prison
