Possession with Intent to Distribute

There are two different criminal charges that a person can face regarding the possession of an illegal substance. The first is simple possession and the second is possession with intent to distribute (PWID). The latter of these charges is more difficult to prosecute, since it must be proven that the alleged offender not only possessed the drugs, but intended to distribute them to others. Charges of PWID can range from a category D felony to a category B felony, depending on the type of drug and the amount in question.
