I had asked someone in the legal loop why the bail was so low, I was told that it was not heroin, that it was marijuana. I referred to it as weed, cause i was too lazy to look up how to spell "Marijuana" That's all

Well that person either lied to you or was not really in the "loop" now were they?

Anyhoo, you are just one of those people who contribute to horrendous rumor mill in this area. A classic example of "I know someone who knows someone who knows NOTHING"...lol Classic Yates County!

Even if it was Marijuana, (according to research) a dime bag weighs about a gram so that would be 76 grams = 2.68 ounces. Since it was in individual packets it would fall under intent to sell and after doing some googling that would be a Class E Felony punishable by 1-4 years in prison and a $5,000 fine...

Is that about right Mean Gene?

The kid will get out of the system in under a year with the way the courts and DOC is set up. I know someone who got a class b drug felony a year after he got two of the same. He was on felony probation for the first charges. He was sentenced to 4 years in the state corrections system. He was out in 11 months. And now doing very well drug and drama free.

If my memory serves me correctly the Marihuana statutes do not have a "possession with intent to sell" section. It is all based on weight and or actual sale. A sale of just over an ounce (26 grams?) is an E Felony. Marihuana is so expensive too buy that you don't get the police trying to make marihuana buys unless there is something large involved. You can spend around $250 to get an E felony sale. If they screw you on the weight you spent $250 for a misdemanor sale. You can spend $20 and get a "B" felony coke buy.
