- Cultivation of marijuana
- Sale, transportation, or distribution of marijuana (more than one ounce, or 28.5 grams)
- Sale or distribution of marijuana to a minor
- Hiring or employing a minor to carry, transport, or sell marijuana
- Possession of concentrated cannabis (in some cases this offense may be tried as a misdemeanor)
- Maintaining, renting, leasing, or making available a place to grow, harvest, cultivate, store, or distribute marijuana
The penalties for these offenses depend on the crime that was committed. In general, these offenses are punishable by three to four years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
