These crimes can be prosecuted by the state or United States government. At the state level, these crimes can arise out of many scenarios such as a traffic stop that turns into a search of the vehicle where drugs are found. Other times, the local police or federal agents may be working with a confidential informant (CI) who will provide them with information about a seller of drugs. The punishment for narcotics-related crimes often depends on the quantity of the drug that is discovered by law enforcement. Call me to discuss the specifics of your case. Here are some of the narcotics cases I defend:

Possession with intent to sell/distribute cocaine: a person is usually charged with this crime when the quantity of cocaine found is insufficient to establish that the person was involved in cocaine trafficking. However, the cocaine may be packaged in individual baggies, a scale and money consistent with drug sales may also be found which gives the arresting officer cause to believe the person is a seller.

Possession with intent to sell/distribute marijuana: a person is usually charged with this crime when the quantity of marijuana found is insufficient to establish that the person was involved in marijuana trafficking. However, the marijuana may be packaged in individual baggies, a scale and money consistent with drug sales may also be found which gives the arresting officer cause to believe the person is a seller.
