Distribution of a Controlled Substance

The drug distribution laws in Utah prohibit the act of illegally importing, transporting, or selling controlled substances into the State of Utah.

Although these crimes for distribution were created to impose severe punishments on drug dealers, many of these prosecutions involve low-level participants or individuals with a smaller amount of narcotics intended for personal use.
