Penalties for Marijuana Charges in Michigan
Michigan is in the process of legalizing medical marijuana, and state officials are expected to have licenses ready for recreational sales by 2020. As a result, the drug has been considerably decriminalized. Today, an adult can possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana on their person and up to 10 ounces in their home.
If a person has more than 2.5 ounces but less than 5 ounces, they will only face a civil infraction and will be fined $500. Those who have more than 5 ounces of marijuana face a $500 fine and a misdemeanor charge. Marijuana is also legal to grow in Michigan, but only in limited amounts.
If you’re over 21, you’re allowed to cultivate as many as 12 marijuana plants. However, it is still illegal to sell anything you’ve grown. Most severe marijuana charges are for attempting to sell marijuana, regardless if it was legally grown.
Those accused of selling 45 kilograms or having more than 200 plants face the following:
- Up to 15 years in prison
- Up to $10,000,000 in fines
Those accused of selling 5 to 45 kilograms or 20 to 199 plants face the following:
- Up to seven years in prison
- Up to $500,000 in fines
Those accused of selling less than 5 kilograms or less than 20 plants face the following:
- Up to four years in prison
