Penalties for Drug Sale, Manufacture, & Intent to Sell
In Illinois, you are likely to face at least a Class 3 felony charge, even
for possession with intent to sell. For this felony, you could be looking
at 2 to 5 years' incarceration, while aggravating factors could extend
that to 10 years in prison. The potential fines are astronomical, ranging
from $75,000 to $150,000. For federal drug sale charges, you could face
even additional penalties.
These formal consequences leave out the devastation of a criminal record.
With a felony to your name, it can be tremendously difficult to reach
your education and career aspirations. Even applying for an apartment
can be difficult.
Marijuana Sale & Cultivation Charges in Chicago
Under the Cannabis Control Act, it is a Class B misdemeanor to sell 2.5
grams or less of marijuana. It is a Class 1 felony to distribute 2,000
to 5,000 grams of marijuana, while any charges that exceed that amount
could lead to a Class X felony charge.
These penalties for selling marijuana can range from 6 months in prison
and a $1,500 fine to 30 years in prison and a $150,000 fine. If you are
charged with marijuana cultivation, the penalties could be higher, even
double those listed above. In spite of medical marijuana laws, there is
no such thing as a small drug sale charge in Illinois, not even when it
involves hashish or cannabis.
