First-Time Drug Possession: Charges Vary

Drug possession charges depend on the type and amount of the substance. Having up to 10 grams of marijuana usually only results in a misdemeanor. However, possessing larger amounts can be either a misdemeanor or felony, and a conviction can involve jail time.

Possessing harder substances (cocaine, heroin, etc.) is typically a Class D felony, punishable by seven years in prison.

Possession vs. Possession With Intent To Distribute: The Difference

Both charges involve possessing illegal drugs, but intent differentiates the two. Simple possession means the drugs are only meant for personal use. Drug possession with intent to distribute means the authorities believe you were planning to sell or give the drugs away.

Intent To Distribute Drugs: The Charge

Possessing any amount of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute it in Missouri is a Class C felony. The elements of this offense include:

  • Intentionally distributing or delivering controlled substances
  • Attempting to deliver or distribute controlled substances
  • Knowingly having controlled substances with the willful intention to distribute them
  • Consciously allowing a minor to buy or transport controlled substances

Prosecutors rely on evidence like large drug quantities, packaging materials and unusually large cash amounts to prove intent.

Costly Consequences Upon Conviction In Missouri

As a Class C felony, a conviction for intent to distribute carries life-changing penalties. You could face three to 10 years in prison and be ordered to pay a fine approaching $10,000.
