Washington Possession of Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute Charges and Penalties
What is the Sale a Controlled Substance?
It is unlawful for any person to manufacture, deliver, or possess, with intent to manufacture or deliver, a controlled substance.
If you are in possession of a controlled substance, and you intend to sell that substance, try to sell that substance, or sell that substance, you could be found guilty of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute or the sale of a controlled substance.
If you are in the possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell it, or you do sell it, you could face some serious penalties.
What is the Punishment?
The type and amount of the controlled substance you are in possession of or sell will dictate what the penalty could be. Other things that could determine the penalty for possession are if you have a criminal record and what that record includes.
Possession with intent to distribute or sale of a controlled substance classified as a Schedule I or II, which is a narcotic drug, or amphetamine, is a class B felony. A class B felony is punishable by a fine of $25,000.00, if there was less than two kilograms of the drug, imprisonment, or both. If there was more than two kilograms of the drug, it is punishable by a fine of up to $100,000.00, imprisonment, or both.
Possession with intent to distribute or sale of a controlled substance classified as a Schedule I, II, or III, that is not a narcotic or amphetamine, or a Schedule IV or Schedule V drug is a class C felony. A class C felony is punishable by imprisonment for up to five years, a fine of $10,000.00, or both.
