Possession of Controlled Dangerous Substances with Intent to Distribute means to deliver other than by administering or dispersing a controlled substance, as well as the actual, constructive, or attempted transfer from one person to another of a controlled dangerous substance, whether or not there is an agency relationship. 

Unfortunately, with simply possession charges becoming misdemeanor offenses; more and more people are being charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute or PWI offenses. Facing felony drug charges is very serious and it is important to know the criminal defense attorney you hire is experienced in defending drug charges, specifically suppression issues, the Fourth Amendment, and holding police to the burden of lawful conduct.
