Illinois still criminalizes the possession of cannabis and the penalties can be harsh.  Not surprisingly, the laws are even tougher on those individuals caught delivering, selling or possessing cannabis with the intent to deliver.  The crime is also known as MFG/DEL Cannabis or Manu/DEL Cannabis.  The law in this area can be found at 720 ILCS 550/5 [5020000] [5020050] [5020100] [5020150] [5020200] [5020250] [5020300] [5020350].  As one might imagine, the more cannabis a person sells or intends to deliver, the greater the penalty.  At its most serious, cannabis laws can land a person in the Illinois Department of Corrections for 30 years.

 

The following is a list of charges related to possession of cannabis with the intent to deliver.  This table shows the crime, the statute and the sentence range.  Contact Mr. Weisberg today so he can show you how he can help you or a loved one facing these harsh consequences.
