Drug Crimes: Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance

The Massachusetts Drug Crime of Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance is governed by General Laws Chapter 94C, Section 32, which criminalizes the knowing or intentional manufacture, distribution or possession with intent to manufacture or distribute a controlled substance.

In Massachusetts, the Drug Crime of Possession with Intent to Distribute obviously carries stiffer penalties than that of Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance.  A first-time offender convicted of Unlawful Possession with Intent to Distribute Drugs could face imprisonment in the House of Correction for up to 2.5 years; or to State Prison for up to 10 years. Depending on the type of controlled substance at issue, subsequent offenders could face penalties involving minimum-mandatory sentences to even longer state prison state prison sentences.
