Ohio Cocaine Laws

The possession, sale, and trafficking of cocaine is illegal in all states. As with the federal and most other state drug laws, cocaine is treated as a more serious illicit drug than marijauna. Ohio cocaine laws are based on the amount of drugs possessed or sold. Possession of more than 1,000 grams of cocaine is a 1st degree felony, for instance.
