Defending Drug Charges and PWID in Philadelphia


10/26/2017

Possession With Intent to Deliver or PWID covers a wide range of drug related charges under Pennsylvania law.  If you are looking for a skilled attorney with experience defending drug charges and PWID in Philadelphia, we invite you to contact us or call (215) 712-1212 for a free consultation today.

PWID encompasses three primary drug offenses:

  • Drug Manufacture
  • Drug Delivery
  • Possession of drugs with the intent to deliver (delivery includes passing or delivering drugs to another person, even if no money was exchanged or no “transaction” occurred)

Philadelphia police and other law enforcement agencies are looking for a combination of what they consider to be large amounts of drugs accompanied by other “criminal tools” including a substantial amount of cash, multiple cell phones or electronic communication devices, scales, baggies or foil (packaging) and other paraphernalia.   

Heroin, cocaine, opium, methamphetamines, Oxycontin or Oxycodone, Percocet, and mushrooms are all Schedule I and Schedule II drugs.  The consequences are often linked to the quantity of the drugs in question and the presence of Schedule I or Schedule II narcotics.  When these are present the prosecutor will file serious felony charges which carry fines of up to $250,000 and the potential for 15 years in prison.
