Possession of Methamphetamine for Sale (or “Possession for Sale”) is the unlawful possession of methamphetamine with the purpose or intent of selling it. (This code section also covers the unlawful possession for sale of other specified non-“narcotic” substances such as steroids, ketamine and others).
A Defendant does not need to be caught in the act of selling methamphetamine to be charged with possession of methamphetamine for sale. The intent to sell may be inferred by facts such as the amount of methamphetamine possessed, the presence of cash, the presence of packaging materials such as baggies, or other possible facts that may lead to a conclusion that the methamphetamine was not just for personal use.
