Felony Charges for Cocaine in Ohio

The use of powder cocaine has been glamorized in movies. The use of crack cocaine has become a popular recreational drug because of its lower cost. In Ohio, as in many other states, there is a disparity between how drug possession of powder cocaine and crack cocaine are treated. Ohio law states that 25-100 grams of powder cocaine will be a third-degree felony, but just 10 grams of crack cocaine are needed to reach the third-degree felony level.

There is one key factor for any weight and any form of cocaine: It is always charged as a felony.
