Drug Trafficking

Drug trafficking is a worldwide trade of illicit substances. The term encompasses the cultivation, production, distribution and final sales of illegal substances. Illegally trafficked drugs in the U.S. include:

  • Marijuana
  • Heroin
  • Opium
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • LSD
  • Anabolic steroids

Trafficking Penalties
The legal penalty for a conviction for drug trafficking depends on the drug and volume of drug. Most trafficking charges carry a penalty of at least 5-10 years of imprisonment and no more than 40 years. Individual fines total no more than $5 million.

A second offense begins at a 10-year sentence and a fine that will not exceed $8 million for individuals.

Possession of Marijuana

Marijuana possession carries a penalty of up to one year in prison and a fine of no less than $1,000 for first-time offenders.

The second conviction entails a 15-day minimum sentence and a maximum of two years in prison. A fine of up to $2,500 is included. Any convictions afterward carry a 90-day minimum sentence with a maximum of three years prison and a fine of up to $5,000.

Marijuana Legalization in Texas
Texas lawmakers have passed bills in favor of legalization of marijuana, and the law may change soon. However, possession and trafficking are still federal crimes and can be punished accordingly.

Felony Possession

Drug charges that are considered misdemeanors can be upgraded to federal crimes, depending on four factors:

  • The type of drug: The more tightly controlled the substance is, the more likely it is to become a federal crime.
  • The amount of drug: Law enforcement caps misdemeanor charges at specified amounts for each type of drug.
  • Intent to sell: Simple possession of a controlled substance is less punishable than possession with intent to sell.
  • Aggravated charges: Cases that involve injury and violence are often upgraded to felony level no matter the type or volume of drug.

If your drug charge falls into any of the above categories, Calfas Law Group is ready to hear from you. Often, drug crime allegations are built search and seizure errors and can be challenged both in and outside the courtroom. Our attorneys know how to identify these errors and ensure the best possible outcome is aggressively pursued on your behalf.
