The sale, purchase, or distribution (into or out of the State of Florida) of drugs like marijuana, cocaine, heroin, LSD, and ecstasy (MDMA or “Molly”) are serious criminal allegations. At a certain quantity you can be accused of trafficking.

What You Need To Know About Drug Trafficking

What is “trafficking”?

Drug trafficking includes the intentional sale, purchase, manufacturing, delivery, or transportation into or out of the State of Florida in quantities above specified amounts. Some of those thresholds are so low it might surprise (and scare) you.

Minimum Mandatory Sentences

Drug Trafficking carries with it serious penalties. What’s more? Often, there are certain minimum prison sentences required. That means that, unless your attorney can successfully convince the prosecutor to file different charges, your plea offer will include substantial prison time, as will your sentence (if you lose at trial). With such high stakes its imperative to hire a knowledgeable, experienced trafficking lawyer like Jordan Redavid.

10,000+ lbs. or 10,000+ plants = min. 15 yrs. prison and $200,000 fine

25 – 100 grams= min. 15 yrs. prison and $500,000 fine
100 grams – 30 kilos = min. 25 yrs. Prison and $750,000 fine

Trafficking in MDMA (“Molly” or Ecstasy)

10 -200 grams = min. 3 yrs. prison and $50,000 fine
200 – 400 grams = min. 7 yrs. prison and $100,000 fine
400+ grams= min. 15 yrs. prison and $250,000 fine

Trafficking in Methamphetamine (“Crystal” or “Meth”)

200+ grams= min. 15 yrs. prison and $250,000 fine

The federal government prosecutes drug trafficking cases too. And when it prosecutes, it’s seeking millions of dollars in fines, not thousands; decades of imprisonment, not years.
