Yes, it is illegal to provide non-prescribed drugs to someone else and it is illegal for them to have them.
These are covered by Va. Code 18.2-248, 18.2-248.1, 18.2-248.03
but specifically 18.2-248
You can see the statute at this link
The potential penalty depends on exactly what the drug was and the weight of the drug but you can find those ranges in the statute itself
The most likely charge if she didn't sell them would be a class 5 felony
A class 5 can get a term of imprisonment of not less than one year nor more than 10 years, or in the discretion of the jury or the court trying the case without a jury, confinement in jail for not more than 12 months and a fine of not more than $2,500, either or both.
However, she could get probation, the case could plea bargain down, etc.
But those are the worst case possibilities
No, they can convict on someone's testimony although they would probably need the drugs as well.
But she wouldn't have to get caught doing it.
Anything else I can assist with?
