What Is Drug Trafficking?
Drug trafficking involves the distribution of a controlled substance. This includes the importation, transportation, selling or dispensing of these substances, in violation of law. Both state and Federal laws apply, with varying penalties according to the state, and according to other factors, such as whether or not distribution involved minors. Trafficking laws, like laws prohibiting possession, can also be applied to the illegal distribution of prescription drugs.
