Penalties for Drug Possession Offenses in Utah

In Utah, drug possession may be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor. This will depend upon the type and amount of controlled substance, whether the defendant has prior drug-related convictions on his or her record, and whether the defendant was carrying a firearm at the time of the offense.

In Utah, the maximum penalties for drug possession are:
