One of the greatest problems in the United States are illegal drugs. The most available, used and distributed drug is marijuana. Each year approximately 800.000 Americans are arrested for violating marijuana laws.
The biggest number of arrests based on possession of at least a pot of marijuana is made in Texas. Even if it is your first conviction, you can get 180 days jail time and a $2000 fine. The state law in Oklahoma allows judges to sentence to life imprisonment people convicted of cultivation of cannabis or for the sale of the smallest amount of it. Annually over 13.000 people get arrested for pot possession in Oklahoma and they are convicted severely.
The drug law is harsh also in Arizona. The drug laws of this state consider possession of even the smallest amount of marijuana as a felony crime. It is punished by $150.000 fine and up to 18 month imprisonment.
Possession of 20 grams of marijuana, or even less, is punished by a $1000 fine and up to one year prison in Florida, because it is regarded by the state law as a criminal misdemeanor.
And the last but not least of our top 5 most severe drug law states is Louisiana. In Louisiana it is possible to receive a life imprisonment for pot possession if you were previously convicted of marijuana possession.
