DRUG DISTRIBUTION & TRANSPORTATION
Laws against illegal drug transportation and/or distribution are designed to seriously punish big time dealers and repeat offenders. However, most offenders even nonviolent ones will face the harsh consequences if charged and then convicted. Because every state has its own unique drug laws, it is vital that you get the help of a competent attorney who is familiar with the law and who can ensure that you are not unduly punished.

The transporting of illegal drugs, also referred to as narcotics, occurs when an individual or a group knowingly transfers the substances from one place to another. Whether transporting small amounts of narcotics in a car or large amounts in an airplane, both crimes are considered serious offenses. Drug distribution refers to the act of selling narcotics to others and the gravity of the crime depends on the circumstances surrounding the case.
Consequences of a Drug Transportation/Distribution Conviction
The punishments for federal and state drug transportation and distribution convictions vary depending on a number of mitigating factors such as the type/classification of drug being transported/distributed, the geographic location, the amount, and the involvement of minors. Those who import large quantities of narcotics from another country face the most severe penalties. Consequences of a drug transportation/distribution conviction may include:
- Long prison sentence
- Hefty fines
- Registration as a narcotics offender
- Forfeiture of assets
- Drug testing/rehab/counseling
- Search and seizure of property
- Deportation (if not a U.S. citizen)
