Possession with intent to sell is a felony, and the class of felony typically depends on the weight of the drug involved. For example, if you are found guilty of simple possession of marijuana in Tennessee, you will get up to 11 months and 29 days in jail, along with a fine of $2,500.
If it is your third or greater offense, then it will be deemed a Class E felony and can carry a sentence of 1-6 years and a fine of $3,000.
With intent to sell, you can face up to 60 years in prison and $500,000 in fines based on the weight of drugs that were found to be in your possession.
Drug crimes are considered serious offenses, and it is important that you seek legal counsel from an attorney who has experience handling drug crime cases like yours.
