Possession of Marijuana (POM)
The bail bond amount can range from $100-$500. Depending on the amount of marijuana, this charge could also go up to a 2nd degree felony (or a charge in between). Because this charge isn’t considered to be morally bad, and there is no victim, this 2nd degree felony bail bond amount will be closer to $15K.
If a drug offense takes place in a drug free zone, that will make your charge one level higher than it normally would be. So if a possession of a controlled substance is normally a Class A misdemeanor, allegedly committing the offense in a drug free zone would automatically bump it up to a state jail felony. It won’t be an additional charge that you need to pay an additional bail bond amount, but it will make your bail bond amount for the drug charge higher than a non drug free zone.
