Drug trafficking can be both a state and a federal offense, but regardless of where the process unfolds, a conviction of any charge related to drug trafficking carries significant consequences by way of stiff fines and lengthy prison terms. Many times, the amount and type of controlled substance the defendant is alleged to have trafficked can affect the charge and punishment attached, but drug crimes attorneys at The Blanch Law Firm have handled drug trafficking cases of every sort.

The types of drugs with which the defendant is alleged to have dealt, used or possessed is an important factor, as different substances carry different consequences. For instance, a marijuana-related charge will generally, but certainly not always, be less serious than a charge that relates to cocaine, heroin or meth-amphetamine. Learn More
Drug crimes that are international in nature not only carry serious consequences, but they can also be extremely complicated in terms of the way the amount of controlled substances are measured, what acts constitute a crime and which nation has jurisdiction over the proceedings. Not to mention, the United States will look closely at any ties to terrorism as it relates to finances in such a situation, which presents a new set of difficulties. Learn More
Possession of a controlled substance is a charge that varies in severity, but basically, the more you’re accused of possessing, the more serious the punishments involved with a conviction. As is the case with any alleged drug crime, the actual amounts involved can be at issue, and an experienced drug crimes attorney will fight to mitigate these amounts if possible. Learn More
