What Are The Penalties For Possession In Indiana?

The punishments you could be facing for a conviction depend heavily on the amount of controlled substances in question. The greater the amount, the greater the penalties will be. We are equipped to help you combat a range of misdemeanor and felony possession charges, including:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Crack
  • Heroin
  • Fentanyl
  • Methamphetamine
  • Prescription drugs

Do not take your charge lightly. If you are sentenced for a violation, you could be penalized with:

  • 6 months to 3 years prison time
  • Thousands of dollars in fines
  • Probation time after jail or prison sentence
  • Community service

Understanding Additional Charges

Law enforcement officials often try to include additional charges when arresting someone for drug possession. In marijuana cases, they can do this by deducing that any amount over 30 grams was not intended for personal use. If this is the case, you might also be charged with distribution or trafficking crimes, which tend to carry punishments even more severe than just possession.

You should also be aware that certain pieces of drug paraphernalia are illegal to possess, make, or sell in Indiana. Even if no illicit substances are on you when you are arrested, you could be charged with drug possession just for carrying devices used to ingest or process the drug.
