What are the penalties associated with hash in Oklahoma?

Attitudes toward marijuana have been changing quickly in recent years. Marijuana laws across the nation are changing as well, but not as fast. You should always take care to make sure you understand the current law.

As discussed previously in this blog, it is still a crime to possess marijuana in the state of Oklahoma. The following information will talk about drug charges associated with hash, which is derived from marijuana.

First, a brief reminder about the penalties associated with possessing plain marijuana. The first offense is a misdemeanor punishable with jail time and/or fines. If convicted of selling or intending to sell marijuana, you could face many years in prison as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines.

Since hash and other concentrates come from marijuana, the law looks at the possession of these substances just as it looks at regular marijuana. As such, the penalty for possessing hash and marijuana-based concentrates is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000.

If you are looking at drug charges associated with converting marijuana into hash, you will likely be facing felony charges. This means substantially more serious penalties if convicted, including up to life in prison and a fine of up to $50,000.

Drug charges related to the distribution of hash as well as transporting the substance with intent to sell are also quite serious. Possible penalties for such charges include two years to life imprisoned and fines of up to $20,000.

All drug charges in Oklahoma can be serious, regardless of how the rest of the nation handles these offenses. A criminal defense attorney can often make a difference in how these cases turn out.
