There are two possession of thc, I think one was 2003 and the other in 2007

Possession of marijuana is punishable by six months in jail and/or a fine of $1,000 for the first offense, and for second or subsequent offenses (includes ANY prior controlled substance conviction), a maximum of 3.5 years in jail and a fine of $10,000.

As far as I have read the information you gave if for a Felony conviction, what would be the maximum sentance allowed if it is reduced to a misdemeanor by a plea bargain?

Even if the charge was reduced by a plea bargain, the information I provided is correct. A first offense misdemeanor is punishable by 6 mos in jail. A second or subsequent offense (includes ANY prior controlled substance conviction) is punishable by up to 3.5 years in prison and a $10,000.00 fine.
