Drug trafficking, in all of its forms, is considered a federal crime and often carries with it some of the strictest penalties a nonviolent crime can obtain. Holding, moving, selling, or creating drugs are all forms of drug trafficking, and even though the term is generally used for large amounts, it can also apply to very minimal quantities. As the punishments vary from case to case due to many external factors – such as what and where you were trafficking – it is important to understand that drug trafficking is often treated as a felony offense.
