A: In Mississippi, the sale of a counterfeit controlled substance, including a substance represented to be methamphetamine, can lead to criminal charges. If the amount involved is between 2 grams and less than 10 grams, it is considered a felony.

The specific charges and potential penalties can be severe, including fines and imprisonment. The exact consequences depend on the circumstances of the case and the individual's criminal history. It is important to consult with an attorney who can provide guidance based on the details of the case and who is familiar with Mississippi drug laws. Legal representation could be crucial for anyone facing such charges.
