Types of drug dealing charges
Being charged with drug dealing (or drug distribution) is a serious charge. In general, drug dealing charges involve larger quantities of a controlled substance than drug possession but less than the amount of drugs involved in drug trafficking. Being arrested while in possession of larger quantities of drugs can also often be the difference between a misdemeanor charge and a felony charge.
Other factors can also sometimes come into play when it comes to “possession with intent to distribute” charges. These include:
- Amount of cash you have on you at the time of your arrest.
- Being in possession of drug packaging materials during arrest.
- Whether or not you’re armed during arrest.
- Having a scale or other equipment often associated with selling drugs.
Severe penalties for drug dealing also exist if you are arrested within a certain distance of a school, church or other structures. If you have been previously arrested and convicted of “possession with intent to distribute,” the penalties will likely be even worse.
