Marijuana Possession with Intent to Distribute Oklahoma
Oklahoma is known for having some of the toughest drug laws of any state in the nation, especially when it comes to marijuana possession, cultivation, and trafficking. But what about the penalties for selling pot?
Selling vs. Distributing
To be charged with distributing marijuana in Oklahoma, you don’t necessarily have to sell the drug for money. You can be charged with drug distribution for simply giving someone an illegal substance, such as marijuana.
Possession With Intent to Distribute
In Oklahoma, you can be charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute if the police believe they have evidence that you planned to sell or distribute the drug. This could include:
- A quantity of weed that could be considered more than is expected for personal use (generally, more than one ounce)
- A scale
- Plastic baggies
- Text messages implying intent to sell or distribute
Possession with intent to distribute is considered a felony offense in our state punishable by a mandatory minimum sentence of two years in prison and a fine of up to $20,000.
