Drug trafficking charges became a criminal offense decades ago, as the United States began waging its war against drugs. The federal government imposed severe penalties on drug trafficking and drug possession charges, and many states followed suit with heightened penalties of their own. The key distinction with most drug offenses remains the type of substance as well as the quantity.
Trafficking is a broad charge that can be made against a person who knowingly manufactures, sells, delivers, brings into the state, or knowingly possesses large quantities of Schedule I or II drugs. Drug trafficking is a felony offense in Arizona and conviction carries harsh penalties, so call a Phoenix drug trafficking lawyer if you face accusations regarding possessing, manufacturing, selling, or transporting a large amount of Schedule I or II drugs.
Drug trafficking laws are frequently under the microscope due to the range of penalties that often seem disproportionate to the offense. If you have been arrested on suspicion of drug trafficking, it is important to consult with a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible after your arrest. An arrest is not yet a conviction, although a conviction for drug trafficking can have a severe impact on the rest of your life. Drug trafficking charges are often felony offenses, which can impact your ability to hold a job, gain custody of your children, and even vote in federal elections.
