ORLANDO DRUG TRAFFICKING DEFENSE ATTORNEY
WHAT IS DRUG TRAFFICKING?

WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES FOR DRUG TRAFFICKING?
Both federal and state laws are considered in drug trafficking cases. Federally, there are a number of drug laws – in addition to the drug laws for each individual state. Many state laws are modeled after federal drug laws and impose a minimum sentence. The minimum, however, can still include several years in prison and hefty fines. In drug trafficking offenses, the penalty depends on what type of drug was involved, as well as the amount of that substance.
Penalties for trafficking charges involving marijuana can include:
- A mandatory minimum prison sentence of 3-15 years
- Up to $200,000 in fines
Penalties for trafficking charges involving cocaine can include:
- A mandatory minimum prison sentence of 3-15 years, individuals found with more than 150 kilograms could face a life sentence
- Up to $250,000 in fines
Penalties for trafficking charges involving prescription pills/heroin can include:
- A mandatory minimum prison sentence of 3-15 years, individuals found with more than 30 kilograms could face a life sentence
- Up to $500,000 in fines
