Tennessee Drug Possession Laws

In Tennessee, drug possession is prosecuted based on the amount of controlled substance that the accused allegedly possessed. If the amount of drug alleged to be possessed is less than half a gram, the offense is classified as a Class A misdemeanor. If the amount is between half a gram and 1.2 grams, it is a Class C misdemeanor. If the amount is between 1.2 grams and 1.5 grams, it is a Class B misdemeanor. If the amount is greater than 1.5 grams, it is a Class A misdemeanor.

The potential penalties for misdemeanor and felony drug possession include:

  • Fines
  • Jail time
  • Probation
  • Mandatory drug treatment

In addition to these penalties, a conviction for drug possession can result in the loss of professional licenses and the ability to obtain federal student loans. A conviction may also negatively impact your ability to rent an apartment or secure a mortgage. A skilled and knowledgeable drug possession attorney can challenge the evidence that the prosecution intends to use against you and may be able to get charges dropped or reduced.
