Drug Offenses

Drug Offenses: What You Need to Know

 

Criminal drug offenses range from simple possession for personal use to offenses involving large scale drug distribution, drug trafficking and drug conspiracies. Cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana criminal offenses have been prevalent for the last decade as well as abuse of prescription medications. Many of these criminal drug offenses constitute felony crimes which can have immediate and long lasting ramifications. Felony convictions often jeopardize a person’s employment and future employment opportunities, especially for those individuals who maintain professional certifications and professional licenses.

 

Individuals involved in drug distribution are at greater risk for criminal prosecution. Criminal investigations are no longer limited to local law enforcement. Specialized drug task forces now exist which are affiliated with federal agencies such as the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF), and United States Postal Service. These criminal task forces utilize any number of resources including wiretaps and confidential informants to advance criminal investigations and criminal prosecutions. Criminal drug charges may also result in additional charges for criminal firearm offenses and money laundering.
