Drug Trafficking

Similar to drug distribution charges, trafficking charges are brought against individuals alleged to have possessed or sold illegal drugs or controlled substances, generally in large quantities. Trafficking charges, however, also involve the illegal transportation of drugs and illegal substance into and throughout the country. This usually includes moving the drugs across state lines and through various regions.
