What are the penalties for felony drug possession in Tennessee?

Penalties can vary widely with felony possession conviction, depending on the type of controlled substance, the amount in your possession, location, prior offenses, and other factors. Second offense for simple possession (or third offense for marijuana) is a Class E felony carrying penalties of 1 to 6 years in prison, a fine of up to $3,000, and possibly, a drug education program.
