Miami Federal Drug Crime Attorney

Are you facing federal drug charges?

In the United States, both state and federal drug laws outlaw the illegal use of controlled substances such as marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine, LSD, methamphetamines and PCP. Sometimes there is a fine line between where a drug offense is prosecuted on the state or federal level. Fighting allegations of a federal drug offense may seem overwhelming, but it is entirely possible if you have a highly experienced Miami criminal defense attorney by your side.

How drug crimes are prosecuted vary depending on a variety of factors such as the type of drug, the quantity, and what you intended to use it for. For example, the penalties for having less than an ounce of marijuana in your pocket or in your purse are much lighter than if you were trafficking marijuana across state lines.

Under federal law, it's against the law to manufacture, cultivate, sell, distribute, import or export a controlled substance. If a drug charge involves a large quantity of a drug such as marijuana or cocaine, then one can expect a federal agency to get involved early on in the investigation. This is especially the case if the drug was transported across the Florida state line or across national borders as in coming into or out of Mexico or Columbia.

Federal Drug Charges in Miami, Florida

Miami is in a unique position because of its convenient location. It is a criminal hotbed for illegal drug activity and because of its reputation, law enforcement; the FBI and the DEA are on high alert when it comes to detecting and convicting those guilty of trafficking or other federal drug crimes. Because drug activity is so rampant in Florida, the state has exceptionally harsh penalties for those who commit federal drug crimes. How one is prosecuted will depend on whether or not they have any priors on their record, the type of drug, and the quantity. A prison sentence for a federal drug crime can be as little as five years or it can be as long as life in prison.

The state of Florida has long been involved in a "war on drugs." Federal prosecutors in the state of Florida come down hard on criminals involved in selling, distributing and trafficking large amounts of drugs. Not only do you face years in prison if convicted, non-citizens face deportation from the United States. At Hager & Schwartz, P.A., we are here to defend you against federal drug charges.
