what are the laws in new york state conserning vicodin, as if i was in possession of 100 pills or 1000 or 2000?

It is likely to be considered possession with intent to distribute and you would face the same B felony sentences as if you had actually sold it. That means a mandatory minimum of 1-3 if you have no felony record and a mandatory minimum of 4 1/2 - 9 if you do. If you have a large number of tabs such as the 1000+, then it would be life in jail. The seriousness of the number of tabs would be determined by the prosecutor.

i was looking for a more definate answer, like if you were in possession of 100-400 pills, thats a misterminor, and 401-900 thats a low feloney... something to that effect, thanks again.
The code doesn't split it like that, the amount is dependent upon the circumstances and the prosecutor has the determination. See NY Penal Code Art. 220.00 et seq. for the information, but it is not broken down by tabs.
