Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substances

Explanation of VUCSA

VUSCA refers to the Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substances act. This is a Washington law regarding what the penalties are for using and possessing controlled substances, including illegal substances, as well as illegally possessed or sold pharmaceutical drugs. These laws provide for severe sentencing . As drug abuse is on the rise in Washington , state lawmakers have set drug crime enforcement as a high priority.

What are the penalties for VUCSA?

Violations of the uniform controlled substances act include possession of various types of drugs such as marijuana or crack cocaine. It can include illegal possession of a prescription drug. It also includes sales and distribution of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia. The least harsh penalty is for less than 40 grams of marijuana which is a misdemeanor. Even so, this misdemeanor could carry the penalty of up to 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

If you are under the age of 21, it could also mean the suspension of your driver's license. If you are found in possession of over 40 grams of marijuana, you will be facing felony charges . Felony sentencing includes time in state prison and heavy fines in most cases. Intent to sell 2 kilograms or less of methamphetamines can carry a prison sentence of up to 10 years and a $25,000 fine.
