The state of Tennessee treats drugs crimes seriously. Even for a relatively low-level drug crime, such as marijuana possession, you could be charged $250 in fees and be required to attend drug offender school for a first-time offense. The penalties get increasingly stiff for repeated offenses or for more serious offenses. In addition, any kind of drug charge—regardless of whether it’s a misdemeanor or a felony offense—will end up on your criminal record, which can negatively impact your future ability to get a job or secure a loan.
