San Diego Drug Sales Overview

CA Possession For Sales/Purchase Code

Possession for Sale and Purchase of a Controlled Substance is generally charged under California Health and Safety Code sections 11351, 11351.5, 11359, 11378, and/or 11378.5.

The code section charged will depend on the nature of the substance.

These apply to Possession for Sale of marijuana, heroin, cocaine, peyote, other depressants, and opium derivatives, as well as crack (cocaine base) and PCP.

 The elements of possession for sale or purchase are the same as those for simple possession with two additions.

First, the substance must be in an amount sufficient to be used for sale.

Second, the person must have possessed and/or purchased the controlled substance with the specific intent to sell it. 

Whether a substance is held for sales may be established by expert testimony based upon matters such as the quantity, packaging, and normal individual use.

Your San Diego drug sales lawyer should be able to help you understand the lawyer better and how it pertains to your particular charges.
