The penalties for crack possession and sales are some of the most severe of any drug violation, to the point where possessing any amount of crack will result in major penalties. Whether prosecuted in state or federal court, crack possession or the sale of crack will lead to serious jail time and fines in the hundreds of thousands. The DEA prosecutes crack cocaine trafficking violations harshly, handing down 5 year minimum sentences for seemingly minor violations and 10 years to life for serious crack trafficking crimes.
For crack, a conviction of possession with intent to distribute carries a five year sentence for only 5 grams of the substance. Crack is the only drug that carries a mandatory prison sentence for first offense possession. A person convicted in federal court of possession of 5 grams of crack automatically receives a 5 year prison term. A person convicted of possessing 5 grams of powder cocaine would most likely only receive a probation sentence. Even with recent federal crack sentencing reforms, individuals are still spending a decade or more in prison for crack violations.
