Drug Trafficking Laws
Since America began the “war on drugs,” penalties for drug trafficking have increased year after year in an attempt to prevent drug use. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) prosecutes drug trafficking violations relentlessly. First offenses in drug trafficking felony cases could lead to at least a five-year sentence. Drug trafficking felonies can also lead to millions of dollars in fines. Even celebrities have found themselves behind bars for drug trafficking; a former Dallas Cowboys lineman was sentenced to years in court for trafficking hundreds of pounds of marijuana. When the federal government is prosecuting a crime, the only line of defense is a quality criminal defense lawyer.
Drug Trafficking Charges
Drug trafficking laws prohibit the trafficking of the following drugs:
- Fentanyl and Fentanyl Analogue
- LSD (acid)
- Methamphetamine (Crystal Meth)
- Flunitrazepam (sometimes referred to as a date rape drug or roofie)
Some of these drugs are charged as felonies, even if the amount of drug in question is relatively small. Almost any amount of cocaine will immediately warrant an arrest, a felony trafficking charge and more.
