What Is Drug Trafficking?
Drug trafficking involves the following intentional activities:
- Drug sales
- Drug purchase
- Drug delivery
- Drug manufacture
- Drug import
- Drug transportation
To be charged with trafficking, the drugs must meet a specific weight or quantity. Trafficking generally involves Schedule I or II controlled substances. Examples of the drugs that are subject to trafficking laws include cannabis, cocaine, GHB acid, heroin, hydrocodone, MDMA (Ecstasy and Molly), methamphetamine, crystal meth, oxycodone, Percocet, and Oxycontin.
Most drug trafficking crimes are charged as felonies carrying penalties of up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Many of these crimes are subject to mandatory minimum sentences and mandatory minimum fines based on the weight/quantity of the drugs.
For example, at least 28 grams of cocaine and 4 grams of oxycodone or hydrocodone would constitute trafficking under Florida law. In the case of the cocaine, the penalties range from three to 15 years in prison and fines of $50,000 up to $250,000. In the case of oxycodone or hydrocodone, the penalties range from 3 to 25 years in prison with similar fines.
