Ohio Drug Trafficking & Smuggling Penalties

Penalties for trafficking or smuggling drugs in Ohio depend largely on the type and amount of substance involved. For example, the punishments for smuggling marijuana vary greatly from methamphetamines or heroin smuggling charges.

Penalties for trafficking marijuana can include:

  • Between 200 and 1,000 grams: 6 to 18 months in prison
  • 1,000 to 5,000 grams: 9 months to 5 years in prison
  • 5,000 to 20,000 grams: 2 to 8 years in prison
  • 20,000 to 40,000 grams: 3 to 11 years in prison

When a smuggling crime takes place around or near a school or involves juveniles, the penalties can greatly increase. You will also be required to pay fines for a conviction (up to $20,000 for a felony in the first degree) along with court costs and legal fees.
