Speak to a Philadelphia Drug Defense Lawyer

What is the difference between possession andpossession with the intent to deliver cocaine in Pennsylvania? Although the facts surrounding an arrest will affect the charge, often the distinction between the two charges comes down to the weight of thecocaine and the manner in which it is packaged when discovered.

Smaller amounts often indicate possession for personal use, while larger quantities or separately packaged controlled substances are often used as evidence of the intent to distribute the drugs. There are also several other factors a person charged with possession of cocaine should consider which may effect his case, such as the defendant’s prior record, if any, whether or not the defendant is a parent or guardian of a minor, or if the defendant’s job will be effected by the charge.
