Drug Trafficking Charges
Drug trafficking is a possessory offense; simply having a certain quantity of controlled substances in your possession can be labeled trafficking, despite your intent. The larger the amount of drugs in your possession, the more severe the potential penalties. If you are convicted of drug trafficking, you may face a minimum of three years in prison, extremely high fines and more.
When Does Possession Become Trafficking?
The amount that determines when possession becomes trafficking varies depending on the drug. Below are the quantities that are considered trafficking for a few common controlled substances.
- 2.2 pounds or more of marijuana
- 1 ounce or more of cocaine
- 4 grams or more of meth
