How Police Will Try to Prove Intent to Sell

By Law Offices of Robert Bernstein  Mar. 28, 2011 9:12a

If the police find any other evidence that might indicate selling is taking place, they will use this as proof of intent to sell. This evidence might include items like scales for weighing the marijuana, cash, accounting sheets or packaging materials for the marijuana itself. If a person is convicted of possession with intent to sell, he could face up to six years in prison for this is a felony offense. In order to avoid being convicted, one would need a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney to help prove that the marijuana was for personal use and the penalties would be less harsh.
