Federal Drug Importation Charges
Are you accused of unlawfully bringing drugs into the U.S.?
When goods are imported, this means that they are brought into the U.S.
from another country. The United States has strict laws governing how
goods, including drugs, can be imported. The
Controlled Substances Import and Export Act allows for the importation of controlled substances for medical purposes,
scientific purposes or for other legitimate uses, when certain protocols
are followed. When individuals who are not authorized to import drugs
into the U.S. do so, they can end up facing serious
federal drug charges.

Depending on the type of charges filed and the details of the alleged offense,

drug companies and others who work in the medical or drug industries are
not immune--even they can end up being faced with criminal charges if
they are believed to be importing drugs unlawfully.
