Drug Distribution in Orange County

Restoring Your Reputation & Your Future

Distribution typically refers to the selling, delivering, or providing of controlled substances illegally. This is different from simple possession since the prosecution must prove that the defendant did not intend to use the drug themselves but had intended to distribute it. To fight these charges, contact an Orange County drug crimes lawyer today.

Penalties for Drug Distribution in CA

Punishments for drug trafficking and/or distribution can vary. Possession for sale or purchase for sale of a controlled substance carries up to four years in jail, while possession for sale of any cocaine-based substance carries up to five years in jail. Transportation, importation, furnishing, administrating, or offering for transport any controlled substance may also be punished by up to five years in jail. Dispensing and furnishing prescription drugs is a misdemeanor. Any type of distribution conviction can lead to between $5,000 and $10,000 in fines.

Punishment often depends on the type of drug distributed:

  • Marijuana distribution is a felony carrying 2 to 4 years in prison
  • Cocaine based drug distribution is a felony carrying 3 to 5 years in jail
  • Distribution of chemicals used to make PCP or methamphetamine carries between 16 months and 6 years in jail

Furthermore, hiring minors to sell or distribute controlled substances is up to nine years in prison. If you transport drugs from one non-contiguous county to another, you could face between three and nine years of jail or prison time.
