Hi - my name is Kirk and I'm a litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.

Under South Carolina law, penalties for a first offense possession of schedule 2 drug is a fine of up to $5,000, up to two years in prison, or both.

These are the maximum penalties, and you can usually get away with a smaller fine, probation and no jail time (although jail time is possible, it's not probable).
