Prosecutors in Buffalo look at drug sales in two ways.
In the first, a person is arrested for selling small amounts of drugs more or less on their own.
In the second, the person arrested is believed to be part of an organization operating as a major trafficker for large amounts of drugs and creates large amounts of revenue.
You can be charged as a director of a controlled substance organization even if you haven’t personally been arrested for selling drugs, as long as the organization has sold more than $75,000 worth of drugs in a 12-month period.
You can also be charged as a profiteer in a controlled substances organization if you possess or have sold large quantities of narcotic drugs just once, with a net value of $75,000 or more. All of the above crimes are categorized as A-I Felonies, and you’ll face a minimum sentence of 15-40 years in state prison.
