What is considered drug trafficking?

Many think of drug trafficking as a crime associated with drug dealers or cartels. While this can be true, it often entangles everyday individuals under its board definition. Drug trafficking is any transportation of or sale of controlled substances in excessive amounts. Even if you are simple found in possession of drugs, if the amount is significant enough, you could be arrested for presumed trafficking. In California, drug trafficking is a felony and can become a federal crime if a person crosses state lines.

For example, the following penalties can be enforced in a federal charge involving meth:

  • First offense: Between 5 and 40 years in prison and $5 million in fines
  • Second offense: 10 years to life in prison and $8 million in fines
  • Third offense: 20 years to life behind bars if death or injury results from drug usage

If there is more than 50 grams of meth, the charges will significantly increase, carrying up to $20 million in fines and life in prison. Different drugs will carry varying penalties, depending on the amount involved. However, any trafficking charge should be taken very seriously. Furthermore, you can be accused of trafficking even if you were not directly responsible for transporting the drugs. If you helped or aided the transportation in any way, you could easily find yourself facing trafficking charges.
