Misdemeanor Drug Crimes in Oklahoma:
- Possession of an Imitation Controlled Dangerous Substance
- Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance (any substance categorized as Schedule III, IV, or V, including marijuana)
- Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
Just like many other crimes in Oklahoma, almost all misdemeanor drug crimes enhance to a felony if the person is charged with a second or subsequent drug offense. One exception is Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. While Possession of Drug Paraphernalia remains a misdemeanor no matter how many times a person is charged with the crime, the potential fine increases exponentially up to a person’s third offense. Substances categorized as “Scheduled Substances” can be found in the Uniform Controlled Dangerous Substances Act, Title 63, Section 2-203 through 2-212 of the Oklahoma Statutes.
Often, first-time misdemeanor drug crimes are charged in municipal court instead of State court. While the punishments in municipal courts are normally less than those in State courts, someone charged with a misdemeanor drug crime in municipal court should still hire an attorney to handle the matter. Misdemeanor municipal drug crime charges have the same potential to negatively affect a person’s day-to-day life.
