Las Vegas LSD Related Crimes

Experienced Drug Crime Defense Lawyer

Have you been arrested for an LSD-related crime? LSD is a hallucinogenic substance, which is often used as a party drug or for a variety of other uses. It is illegal to purchase, possess, sell or manufacture. According to NRS 484C.080, LSD is classified as a prohibited substance, as a Schedule I drug. You could find yourself facing felony charges and the consequences for a conviction of an LSD-related offense are very severe.

Our firm can represent you on a wide range of LSD charges, including:

  • Purchase of LSD
  • Sale of LSD
  • Possession of LSD
  • Distribution of LSD

Federal & State Penalties for LSD Crimes

As an illicit drug, LSD is either prosecuted in state or federal court, depending on the circumstances of the alleged crime. If you are charged with minor possession or were caught using LSD, it is likely your case will not be prosecuted in federal court. Cases likely to be prosecuted in federal court include charges of trafficking, manufacturing or possession of large quantities of LSD.

The federal consequences of LSD offenses may include the following:

  • Trafficking 1-9 grams:
    • First time offender:
      • 5-40 years in prison
      • Up to $2,000,000 in fines
      • 20+ years if death or injury occurred as a result of the crime
    • Second-time offender:
      • 10 years-life in prison
      • Life imprisonment if death or serious injury resulted
      • Up to $4,000,000 in fines
  • Trafficking 10 or more grams:
    • First time offender:
      • 10 years-life in prison
      • Life imprisonment if death or serious injury resulted
      • Up to $4,000,000 in fines
    • Second-time offender:
      • 20 years-life in prison
      • Life imprisonment if death or serious injury resulted
      • Up to $8,000,000 in fines
    • Third or subsequent offender:
      • Life in prison

If you are found guilty of a lesser offense, such as minor possession with intent to sell or possession for personal use, you could face time in jail and lesser fines. The exact consequences weigh heavily on the nature of the alleged crime.
