Penalties for Drug Sale Crimes
The selling or distribution of drugs is a felony that can result in severe
consequences lasting anywhere from three years to life imprisonment.
The penalties for drug sale charges vary depending on the following:
- Type of drug
- Amount of drugs sold
- Previous charges
- Location of distribution
- Employing a minor
- Distributing drugs to a minor
Controlled substances are categorized by schedules with marijuana within
Schedule I, Cocaine in Schedule II, and anabolic steroids in Schedule
III. Selling of controlled substances can result in a felony with a three
to five year sentence.
Under California law, sentences could increase if drugs are sold to a minor
or if selling occurs within 1,000 feet of schools or playgrounds in operation.
If you are involved in the hiring of minors or selling controlled substances
to minors, you may face 3-9 years in state prison.
