Miami Federal Drug Crime Lawyer

Understanding Federal Drug Crimes

Both state and federal laws outline a number of drug offenses, and at times the line to distinguish what should be classified as a federal drug crime may seem blurry. Under federal law, it is illegal to distribute, sell, import, export, traffic, cultivate or manufacture controlled substances.

Most often, federal agencies will become involved and the offender will face federal criminal charges if the offense involves a very large amount of drugs or if the offense involves crossed state lines or national borders.

Penalties for Federal Drug Crimes

The penalties for a federal drug crime conviction may vary depending on not only the nature of the offense but also the type of drug and the amount. Controlled substances are classified according to their potential danger for abuse as well as any medical value they may have. The more dangerous the drug is perceived to be, the greater the penalties for a conviction.

For example, LSD is considered a Schedule I substance (the most dangerous) and a conviction for even a first offense involving a mixture of 1 to 9 grams will result in a prison sentence of 5 to 40 years. A second offense or 10+ grams of mixture may result in a lifetime in prison.
