Resolving Drug Trafficking Charges

If you have been arrested on suspicion of drug trafficking, you may be facing federal and state charges. The type and amount of the drugs involved are factors in determining the charges and penalties, even if you had no intention of selling or trafficking. Drug trafficking has severe penalties, so it is critical that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. Defendants risk being sent to prison for many years if they are convicted.

You Could Face Years In Prison If Convicted

In North Carolina, any person who sells, manufactures, delivers, transports or possesses certain amounts of a controlled substance may be charged with a felony. The quantity of each controlled substance involved determines the class of felony and the resulting penalties.

Controlled substances may include:

  • Marijuana and synthetic cannabinoids
  • Methaqualone
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Amphetamine
  • MDPV
  • Mephedrone
  • Opium or opiates
  • LSD
  • Methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA)

Even if you possessed the drugs solely for personal use, prosecutors may still pursue trafficking charges. Penalties for conviction of trafficking charges can be especially harsh, even if you have no prior criminal record. We will work to reduce the charges or penalties as much as possible.
