Criminal penalties for drug sales depend on the type and amount of drug and prior convictions. Also, charges brought against a non-drug dependent defendant carry mandatory minimum prison sentences, while drug dependent defendants are not subject to mandatory minimum terms. Selling, transporting, or possessing with the intent to sell 1 ounce or more of heroin or methadone, ½ ounce or more of cocaine, or 5 milligrams or more of LSD by a non-drug dependent person is punishable by a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 5 to 20 years, and up to life in prison – these are very serious charges.
