Washington Drug Laws

While the state was a trailblazer for legal marijuana possession, criminal penalties are still harsh for those found in possessing or cultivating certain substances. While the amount in question and the potential intent associated with the substances will change the severity of the sentence, possession of a controlled substance is charged as a Class C felony. If convicted, you face fines of up to $10,000 and up to 5 years in prison.

Other criminal penalties include:

  • Possession with intent to distribute—Class B felony with up to 10 years in prison and fines of up to $20,000
  • Possession of methamphetamine—Class C felony with up to 5 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000
  • Possession of other narcotics such as LSD or mescaline—Class C felony with up to 5 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000

These penalties are enhanced by certain other factors as well, such as if the accused was caught near a public school or park, a sale was attempted to a minor, or the State alleges deadly weapon was in your possession at the time. A criminal defense lawyer can help you prevent these enhancements from severely damaging your future.
