What are the legal consequences for taking and selling PCP if you are caught?

I know someone who is currently climbing the PCP distributor ladder and I wanted to inquire some information about PCP. If this individual is caught consuming and selling PCP, and is tried through a court of law, what possible sentencing times and over all charges could the individual face?

    If it goes federal it all depends on the weight that was distributed. If it stays in the state there could be a conspiracy to deliver and multiple counts. If you are federal you will get lots of time. If you stay in the state, it depends on what county in Wyoming. I would say selling one time in a state is a 0-10 year possibilities. Selling a lot of times could bring you into the Feds as long as they can link you to someone that is over state lines. That could be the distributor's distributed and you don't even have to know that guy.

    Possession of PCP is a felony, and distribution is a more serious felony, which carries prison time. There are a lot of variables that would affect someone's actual sentence in a particular case.

    It depends on many factors. Quantity sold is one factor. That alone can make it a federal offence. Wheather the person is armed is another issue. The number of people involved can also impact the sentence. Suffice it to say such activity is stupid, dangerous and immoral as well as illegal.
