Possession with Intent to Distribute

Queens Drug Possession Attorney

Drug crimes are considered very serious offenses that carry significant punishments. One of the reasons these crimes carry such heavy penalties rests on the perception that drugs have the potential to substantially injure and even kill those who use them. Lawmakers and law enforcement officers, both at the state and federal level perceive the sale or distribution of drugs as a serious threat to the safety of the population. In order to protect yourself from the heavy enforcement of drug possession laws and the damaging effects a conviction can have on your life, it is absolutely essential that you hire a New York City drug possession attorney.

Understanding Possession with Intent to Distribute Charges

Individuals are charged with possession with intent to distribute when law enforcement officers find a large amount of drugs in his or her possession. Even if the drugs found were never meant to be sold or distributed, the quantity of the substance in the case could lead the prosecutor to determine that the amount involved extends beyond the personal use of the drugs.

The quantity required to increase your charges from simple possession to possession with intent to distribute varies depending on the drugs in question. Some prescription drugs do not need to be found in large quantities to bring about a possession for sale charge. No matter what the quantity or type of drugs found in your possession, the penalties for this offense are very serious.
