There are specific circumstances that may lead to the government charging a defendant with marijuana possession with the intent to sell or distribute. This is a more serious form of drug possession that is typically charged when law enforcement has allegedly discovered large quantities of marijuana on a person’s property or when other evidence is present that would indicate an intent to distribute or sell the substance: baggies, measuring scales, client lists, large amounts of cash, weapons and similar items.
