Drug Importation Defense in Miami


Drug importation is a type of drug crime that refers to the importing of unlawful controlled substances into the state of Florida or the United States. When a person imports drugs such as: marijuana, cocaine, heroin, LSD, Ecstasy, and/or methamphetamines, he/she is committing the criminal act of drug importation. Drug importation is a state and federal crime and is subject to both state and federal laws and legal consequences.

Each year, a large amount of drugs are imported into the country and state. Due to this escalating problem, law enforcement is apt to prosecute any person that they suspect is importing narcotics. This means that people who commit drug importation will be subject to invasive investigations, immediate arrest, and prosecution.


After a person has been arrested for drug importation, his/her criminal charges will depend upon a variety of factors, such as: the amount of drugs imported, the type of drugs imported, if the drugs were sold, the person’s criminal history, and if the person has prior drug crime convictions on his/her criminal record. These factors will not only determine if the person is charged with a misdemeanor or felony, but also determine the severity and duration of the person’s legal penalties if he/she is convicted.

If you have been charged with drug importation, it is in your best interest to consult with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. You will want to become informed of your rights, legal options, and possible defense strategies from the onset of your charges.
