Penalties for Possession of a Controlled Substance in Missouri

The crime of drug possession is covered under MO Rev Stat § 195.202. Under this statute, it is illegal for a person to have a controlled substance in their possession. With the exception of fewer than 35 grams of marijuana, anyone found violating this law could be charged with a Class C felony, facing up to 7 years imprisonment and up to $5,000 in fines. The crime of possessing 35 grams or less of marijuana is charged as a Class A misdemeanor, which carries up to 1 year in jail and up to $1,000 in fines.

Controlled substances are divided into Schedules I through V, which sort them by severity. Crimes involving Schedule I substances are some of the most serious offenses.

Schedule I drugs include:

  • GHB
  • Heroin
  • Marijuana
  • MDMA
  • LSD
  • Peyote
  • Mescaline

Schedule II drugs are the next tier down. This level includes cocaine, Oxycodone, Opium, Ritalin, and Adderall among others.
