When you are arrested with a larger quantity of drugs than the prosecutor feels one person could use, or if you are arrested with a scale or individually wrapped pacakages, you may be charged with drug sales. Even if you brought the scale to ensure you wouldn't be ripped off, or you were stocking up for a long weekend, those items can be indicia of drug sales. Other indicia of drug sale may include (according to the district attorney's expert witness testiimony) scales, pay owe sheets, pagers or extra cell phones, extra empty zip lock baggies, phone or contact lists, and even weapons.
