Even if you have only a small amount of drugs in your possession, you may still face charges of selling a drug. It is important to keep in mind that under Louisiana law, in addition to the manufacture of drugs, possession with intent to sell or distribute carries even more serious penalties.
Louisiana prosecutors are aggressive when it comes to any type of drug crime. Under Louisiana statutes, drugs are broken out into five schedules with each one carrying subsequently greater fines, longer prison sentences and often sentence and charge enhancements.
Being arrested for any type of sale of controlled substances in Louisiana should never be taken lightly. It is imperative that you contact a criminal defense attorney who understands what state and federal laws may impact the outcome of your case.
