Methamphetamine Possession, Sale, & Trafficking in NV

Nevada State legislation has taken numerous steps to ensure that any sort of interaction with methamphetamine is illegal. Being caught with even a small amount of meth is a felony offense that can carry serious penalties. Penalties can increase in severity depending on the amount of meth found in a person’s possession, who is involved in the alleged criminal act, the location of the arrest, and the defendant’s history of prior offenses.

The three main types of meth crimes and their penalties are as follows:

1. Possession: The possession of methamphetamine in any form is a category E felony offense in Nevada, carrying up to four year in prison upon conviction. While a first or even second offense possession charge may sometimes be dismissed in favor of mandatory substance abuse treatment, third or subsequent offenses can increase to a category D felony and carry mandatory prison time, along with fines up to $20,000.

2. Sale: Possession of meth with intent to sell is generally more serious than a simple possession charge. A first offense possession with intent to sell is a category D felony, carrying up to four years in prison and fines up to $5,000. In serious cases, a third offense conviction can bring up to 15 years in prison and fines up to $20,000.

3. Trafficking: In instances where a defendant is found with 28 grams or more of methamphetamine, they may be charged with drug trafficking. Trafficking charges for possessing at least 28 grams but less than 200 grams of meth can carry up to 5 years in prison and fines up to $50,000. For more than 200 grams but less than 400 grams, penalties increase to up to 10 years in prison and fines up to $100,000. Finally, if a defendant is caught with 400 grams of methamphetamine or more, they can face 15 years to life in prison and fines up to $250,000.
