In Virginia, selling imitation cocaine is a felony

Dec 02, 2013 In Virginia, selling imitation cocaine is a felony

What would lead one to sell imitation cocaine rather than the real thing? To increase profit margin (but what about the risk of backlash from customers realizing they have been swindled?)? To reduce possible sentencing length if convicted? To make money when the vendor has no real cocaine available to sell?

In Virginia, selling imitation cocaine and other Schedule I and II drugs is a class 6 felony, jailable up to five years. Va. Code § 18.2-248. A conviction is even possible for passing off as cocaine a Schedule 6 drug that is not subject to abuse. Powell v. Virginia, ___ Va. App. ___ (Nov. 26, 2013).
