Federal Drug Crimes Lawyer in Seattle

Federal Crime Attorney in Seattle, Washington

Drug offenses can include a number of different actions, and they can involve various kinds of controlled or illegal substances. Generally, in order for a drug crime to be charged at the federal level, there must be an extremely high amount of illegal substance involved. Because of this, the most common type of drug crime that is charged at the federal level is the offense of drug trafficking. Drug trafficking involves the importing and exporting of large quantities of illegal or controlled substances into and out of the United States.

If you are arrested and charged with the crime of drug trafficking, then you could face significant penalties for a criminal conviction depending on the amount, and the schedule of drug that is involved in your case. Illegal and controlled substances are all divided up into various categories, called schedules, according to their potential for abuse and their recognized medical use. Schedule one drugs contain the most dangerous with no recognized medical use, while schedule five contains those with the least potential for abuse and the most recognized medical use. If you are charged with trafficking a schedule one drug, then you could face exorbitant fines, and extensive prison time, even up to life imprisonment in the more severe cases.
