Depends on which state it was delivered to. Look to the state that seized it. And google it there. an ounce is pretty low and I seriously doubt they have the resources to do anything, but hopefully you didn't have your return address on it. And the cops may be watching the recipient now.

The penalty for a crime is based on a variety of things such as whether you have a prior record. These items are all listed in the Federal Court "Sentencing Guidelines." The fact that the matter is in Federal Court at all immediately elevates it's seriousness. You're facing serious charges that probably include counts of "manufacturing and delivery" and "conspiracy to distribute." The fact that the amount of the drug was small will help, but that fact that it was mailed and went from one state to another will hurt a lot because it shows planning, organization and so on. You need to get a good criminal lawyer who can review your history and the present case and tell you what the sentencing guidelines say. They will also help you defend yourself and you should start contacting lawyers immediately. If you can't afford one, you should ask the Judge to appoint one for you.

Depending on the circumstances, the mere fact that you crossed states lines, will bring it into the federal arena. They may well begin an investigation into trafficking charges. You should immediately hire an attorney for pre-indictment purposes.

The amount you mailed may not be too much; however, your methods are what have caused for you a major problem. By using the US mail (especially if you were mailing kthe package to another state or country) makes the crime a federal offense. You need to consult with a local attorney.

Probation. You better get an experienced criminal attorney. It is a federal offense and can wreak havoc on the rest of your life. You might be able to get a diversion and avoid a conviction but you have to act quickly.

The penalty for transportation of marijuana across state line depends on several factors, including, but not limited to, the amount (you stated less than an ounce), whether you have any prior criminal record, and whether there is evidence you intended to sell the marijuana.

That depends on a number of factors, but if you have no priors you could get probation or up to a few years in federal prison. It is a serious federal offense and can also be charged in state court, but it will most likely result in federal charges since you used the mail and it was interstate.Retain a good criminal attorney and do not talk to the police, answer their questions, or make any admissions no matter what they promise or threaten. They will have a hard time proving the case unless you make admissions or used your own return address and got your fingerprints all over the package.
