The state of Arkansas takes the possession of controlled dangerous substances (CDS) very seriously, but possessing with proven intent to illegally sell them is treated even more severely. Depending on the type of controlled substance involved, you could be facing serious consequences that will leave a lasting impact on the rest of your life.

These laws do not just address banned substances, like marijuana or opiates—they also provide penalties if you are caught selling drugs that are only available via prescription, such as codeine, Vicodin, and Adderall. It is illegal to be in possession of these drugs without a prescription from a doctor, and possessing them with the intent to resell them is also punishable by Arkansas law.

If you have been accused of possession with the intent to illegally sell CDS, you need a skilled Jonesboro criminal defense attorney on your side. Do not face the legal system alone. Call Ford & Cook, PLC at (870) 853-3621 today and schedule a case consultation.

Penalties for Possession with Intent to Sell

The classifications for possession of a CDS with intent to sell can range from a Class-A misdemeanor at the very least severe, all the way up to a Class-Y felony. The penalties for these crimes can include:

  • Prison sentences ranging from several months to up to 40 years
  • Fines of up to $15,000
  • A permanent felony criminal record
  • Impacted ability to hold or seek employment
  • Loss of right to government assistance
