Meanwhile, the sale of drug paraphernalia for illegal drug use is a misdemeanor.
Quantity And Type
The quantity of drug and its type determines the level of charges. Possession of a small amount of marijuana, less than 30 grams, is a misdemeanor with a relatively small fine compared to an offense with a larger amount of cannabis.
