Marijuana Laws in Ohio?
Misdemeanor - Offenses lower than felonies and generally punishable by fine, penalty, forfeiture, or imprisonment. A minor misdemeanor does not create a criminal record in Ohio but some people have found that it can still appear in background checks
Decriminalization - The state has decriminalized marijuana to some degree. Typically, this means no prison time or criminal record for first-time possession of a small amount for personal consumption. The conduct is treated like a minor traffic violation (minors may be
*For drug convictions in Ohio, including minor misdemeanors, the offender's driver's license is suspended for a period of 6 months - 5 years. Professional licenses are also suspended... This may change based on if it is a state ordinance or city ordinance but I am no expert.
*Minors are often told they need to appear in person in court just like you would if you are a minor in a traffic accident and it is considered your fault.
*Ohio has DUID laws. Any motorist with detectable amounts of THC in their blood above 2 ng/ml, or THC_COOH in the urine above 15 ng/ml faces penalties of 3 consecutive days in jail or a driver’s intervention program, along with a suspended license.
*Job urine tests may detect marijuana 1-5 days after an "occasional use

Paraphernalia possession is is a misdemeanor with 30 days in jail and a $750 fine.
100 g to 200 g is a 4th degree misdemeanor with 30 days in jail and $250 fine.
Distributing paraphernalia is a misdemeanor with 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
200 g to 1000 g is 5th degree felony with 6 months to 1 year in prison and $2,500 in fines.

5000 g to 20,000 g is a felony with 1 - 5 years of incarceration.
20,000 g or more is a mandatory minimum 8years in prison.
me, marijuana and schizophrenia?
You're not tripping out. Your mind is simply expanding beyond its boundaries and you are learning this to be bad, because of what society has taught you. Only excessive drug use of psychedelics like LSD and MDMA can cause sudden symptoms of mental disorders. Marijuana has never been known in all of history to perpetuate mental disease. All you are experiencing is awareness in your own self, so take advantage of any creative desires you feel and also think really hard when you are tripping out because you will begin to see your many talents and feel more comfortable with who you are. Just because you "feel" like you are resembling a different person does not mean you have a mental problem. You are simply extending yourself into who you were meant to be. But I don't recommend taking too many hallucinogens or smoking pot all the time. You need some sober time to be active and put your experiences/thoughts to real life use.
