Drug Trafficking in the US

The federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) works to stop the over $60 billion that Americans spend on illegal drugs each year, especially in light of the recent increase in drug trafficking and gang violence at the United States / Mexico border. As such, drug trafficking cases are prosecuted aggressively and often come with harsh punishments.

Charges of Drug Trafficking

Sentencing for a conviction of drug trafficking varies based on the drug the defendant was charged with trafficking, and often ranges from a minimum of 1 year in jail to over 20 years in prison and huge fines. Drug trafficking lawsuits most commonly involve:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroine
  • Methamphetamine (Meth)

Marijuana and heroin are classified as Schedule I drugs, while Cocaine and Methamphetamine are Schedule II drugs. If an individual is convicted of trafficking any Schedule I or II drugs, the penalties almost always include mandatory jail time and fines.
