Justipedia explains Possession With Intent to Deliver (PWID)

It is not easy to prove the intent since it is a subjective matter. The accused is still likely to face the penalties even if the intent to distribute or deliver is not proved. If the defendant is charged for simple possession, the charges they may face might be considerably low than if the intent to distribute is proven.
