Possessing marijuana plants is a felony offense. If you are found guilty of possessing 1 to 49 plants, you could face 5 years in prison; 50 to 100 plants and you face up to 20 years in prison. A charge of marijuana trafficking of 1 ton (approx 1,000 kilos) can result in 10 years to life in federal prison.

- Conspiracy, if you worked with others
- Money laundering
- Tax evasion
- Possession of drug paraphernalia, if they find materials in your possession that could be used to cultivate marijuana or to sort, package or distribute hashish
