    You should recalculate your sentences page, I for one know of a gentleman who got 30 years for cultivation in the state of Virginia which was the maximum under sentencing guidelines… All but 9 months was suspended and 4 years later he is now on the run because he was charged with possession of $1200 worth under 1lb. And now faces 39 years for simple possession, 10 years max on that and 29 years for the suspended time and had no police record prior to any of this. Your list shows 1 year as a maximum for possession,now remember this amount goes up having anything over 28grams which under that amount may be grounds for 1 year max but anything over a handful “literally” is deemed a serious offense in that state.
