Prosecutors must prove that the actual weight of cocaine, excluding any filler materials, meets statutory levels when prosecuting cocaine-possession cases.
BUT SEE: State v. Gonzales, Slip Opinion No. 2017-Ohio-777
Supreme Court grants the State’s motion for reconsideration, and overrules Gonzales I. Under Gonzales II, in cocaine possession-cases, the State does not need to prove the weight of cocaine without filler.
