The federal government has gone to great lengths to curtail the illegal distribution of drugs and other controlled substances, including passing “drug trafficking” charges. Contrary to popular belief, drug trafficking does not necessarily involve carrying these substances over any particular line, such as state lines or international borders. In fact, the laws are so vague that they can include everything from production and cultivation, distribution, and sale of these substances. The penalties for being found guilty of drug trafficking can be severe in Kansas and Missouri, particularly because most drug trafficking accusations are federal charges.

If you are facing drug trafficking charges, it’s important that you seek high-quality, experienced counsel from a Kansas City drug crimes attorney with experience in federal court.

What Is Considered Drug Trafficking?

You could be charged with drug trafficking for a number of different actions, each of which could change the penalties you face. While you could be charged with trafficking by just possessing drugs, trafficking charges are usually reserved for when law enforcement have considerable evidence of intent to sell, as well as drug sales or drug manufacturing in Kansas or Missouri.

Penalties for drug trafficking can include:

  • Jail or prison time
  • Large fines
  • Probation
  • Permanent criminal record
  • Mandatory drug education classes

Difference Between Trafficking & Distribution

Does drug trafficking sound an awful lot like distribution charges? The two are remarkably similar, however there’s an important difference between the two that may determine which one you are actually charged with. Drug distribution usually refers to the actual process of importing, transporting, and selling illegal substances, which in and of itself is considered a Class B felony.

Trafficking is similar, however these charges are usually levied based on the weight of the drugs in question. Should the amount of drugs weigh a substantial amount, regardless of whether or not they have been moved or sold, you could be charged with drug trafficking.
