What Qualifies as Drug Trafficking?

Drug trafficking also known as drug distribution, is the act of selling, transporting, or unlawfully importing illegal controlled substances such as cocaine, heroine, and other illegal drugs.

What penalties could I be facing?

Before charging you with any penalties, the court must first determine the seriousness of your trafficking crime. This includes the drugs that were involved and the amount being trafficked. In order to be convicted, there must be proof that you acted with full knowledge when transporting the drugs.

Texas operates under the laws set in place by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency.

Federal drug trafficking crimes are punishable by the following:

  • Schedule I and II drugs: Up to 30 years in prison and/or fines up to $10 million
  • Schedule III drugs: Up to 10 years in prison and/or fines up to $2 million
  • Schedule IV drugs: Up to 6 years in prison and/or fines up to $2 million
  • Schedule V drugs: Up to 2 years in prison and/or fines up to $500,000

The court may impose more serious charges if the offense was in a school or other protected zone.
