In Maryland, federal and state officials are very serious when it comes to drug-related criminal charges. Laws on both the state and federal level provide zero or close-to-zero tolerance for drug offenses. Investigators and prosecutors pursue these charges aggressively, and criminal penalties for these offenses are becoming increasingly harsh. For example:
Distribution: For large amounts of drugs that are in close proximity to baggies, scales, weapons, or large amounts of cash, you may be charged with intent to distribute marijuana. If you are charged with selling, distributing or cultivating less than 50 pounds of marijuana, you are facing a penalty of up to 5 years in prison and a $15,000 fine. There are mandatory minimum sentences of up to 5 years for 50 pounds or more of marijuana.
Trafficking: The penalties for transporting marijuana into Maryland vary depending on the amount. A conviction for trafficking between 5 kilograms and 45 kilograms into Maryland holds a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. For amounts of 45 kilograms and more the maximum prison sentence is 25 years and a $50,000 fine.
