Maryland Drug Distribution Laws & Penalties
According to Maryland law, it is illegal for a person – other than an authorized dispenser such as a pharmacy – to distribute or sell a controlled substance, or possess a controlled substance in a sufficient quantity to reasonably indicate an intention to distribute the substance. There is a substantial difference between simple possession and possession with intent. Indications of possession with intent include an abundance of drugs or cash, as well as the presence of packaging material.
If a person violates this law with a Schedule I or Schedule II narcotic (Heroin, cocaine, crack, MDMA, ecstasy, methamphetamine, LSD, or some prescription drugs), then it is considered a felony offense. Penalties include a maximum prison sentence of 25 years and a fine of up to $25,000.
