I think you mean less than one gram. Even a misdemeanor carries a potential jail sentence of up to a year. The likelihood of you serving time depends on a lot of factors, such as whether you have prior convictions and the willingness of the prosecutor to offer a plea bargain.

Possession of cocaine is a 2 to 15 sentence. That sentence can be serve in prison or on probation. The judge will decide how the sentence will be carried out depending on several factors including your record.

There is certainly the possibility of going to prison with a sale charge. It depends on where you are charged and what judge you get.
