Attorney Errol Cook on Possession for Sale of Drugs

California law mandates more severe penalties for possession with intent to sell than it does for simple possession. For example, the penalty for possession with intent to sell amphetamines is up to 4 years in prison. In possession with intent to sell cases, the prosecution need not prove that you actually sold the drugs, but only that you had the intent to sell them. Your intent may be proved with circumstantial evidence. An example of circumstantial evidence would be gram scales and large amounts of cash in your home. There are also sentencing enhancements that may apply to your particular case. For example, dealing cocaine in a school zone or selling to a minor may be punished more harshly.
