Penalties for Drug Sales

Pennsylvania’s drug laws classifies not only well-known drugs as controlled dangerous substances (CDS), but also the materials used to manufacture the drugs. These compounds and drugs are divided into five “Schedules.” Schedule I consists of drugs that have a high abuse and addiction rate, while Schedule V drugs consists of drugs that, while dangerous, do not pose imminent threat.

If convicted for selling CDS, penalties can include:

  • First offense: Up to one year in jail and fines of up to $5,000
  • Subsequent offense: Up to three years in prison and $250,000 in fines
  • If the offense involves amphetamine or methamphetamine: Up to two years in prison
  • If the offense involves GHB: Up to $250,000 or 15 years in prison
