Penalties for Drug Possession
While some states separate drug possession charges by drug type and amount, Nevada will enforce the same penalties for possession of cocaine, ecstasy, heroin, and meth. The severity of the crime, however, can depend on whether this is your first or subsequent offense.
Penalties for drug possession can include:
First or second offense: Crime is charged as a Class E felony and carries a sentence of one to four years in prison
Third offense: Crime is charged as a Class D felony and can include a prison sentence of four years and $20,000 in fines
