Ohio Revised Code
Ohio drug legislation is complicated in part because of the way drugs are classified. There are five schedules of drugs and different ranges of bulk amounts, a combination of which is used to determine the class of drug possession charges — the level of misdemeanor or felony.
The same drug schedules are used to determine the severity of a drug trafficking charge. By definition, drug trafficking may be:
- The sale or offer to sell a controlled substance, or
- The shipment or preparation to ship a controlled substance
All trafficking charges are felonies. All drug possession and trafficking charges may carry a driver’s license suspension.
