Penalties for Drug Possession

If you have been arrested for drug possession, you could be facing serious penalties if convicted. While other states have confusing drug possession laws with penalties varying depending on the type and amount of a drug found in a person’s possession, Tennessee has much simpler legislation in place. This means that you can face the same charges and penalties for possession of any type of illicit drug, including marijuana, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and prescription drugs without a prescription.

Consequences for a first offense can include:

  • A Class A misdemeanor charge
  • Up to one year in jail
  • Fines up to $2,500

Subsequent offenses can be much more serious. A second marijuana possession charge will still be a misdemeanor, though a third marijuana offense or a second possession charge for any substance other than marijuana can bring a Class E felony charge, up to six years in prison and up to $3,000 in fines. Since these penalties can be so severe, it is imperative that you consult with one of our attorneys as soon as possible if you should ever face drug possession charges. We can examine your situation and determine the most strategically advantageous legal approach to your situation.
