Possession with Intent to Sell or Distribute

Our Miami Drug Crime Attorneys Can Fight for Your Freedom & Future

Although a person carrying drugs for personal use can be charged with simple possession in Florida, it is possible that law enforcement may believe you intend to sell or distribute the drugs you possess—before a transaction is made. A conviction for possession with intent results in harsher penalties because it is a felony offense.

If you have been accused of possession with intent, our Miami drug crime lawyers at Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A. are ready to protect your rights, reputation, and future. Our legal team has over 45 years of legal experience to help you either get your charges reduced to simple possession or a lesser offense, or your entire case dismissed.

What is the Difference between Simple Possession & Possession with Intent to Sell?

The term “sell” means transferring or delivering an item to someone else in exchange for money or something of value. Police officers may determine a suspect is attempting to sell drugs he/she has in possession due to having a large amount of drugs on his/her person, carrying a large amount of cash, and/or possessing certain items such as a weight scale or small baggies.

Possession with intent is generally a felony offense. For instance, possession of cocaine with intent to sell is a second-degree felony, which carries a maximum 15-year prison sentence. Possession of marijuana with intent to sell is a third-degree felony, punishable by a prison term of up to five years.
