What Are the Possible Penalties for Drug Trafficking?
The severity of the penalties that are given for a drug trafficking conviction depends on which schedule the drug falls under and the amount of the drugs involved in the crime. Schedule I and II drugs the most serious types of drugs, so trafficking of these substances usually results in the most severe penalties. Depending on the type of drug involved (Schedule I-V), the penalties may include a year or less of imprisonment, or they may be as severe as a life prison term. Fines for trafficking can be hundreds of thousands of dollars, or they can be as high as tens of millions of dollars. Penalties may be enhanced if it is found that the drug trafficking offense resulted in someone else's serious bodily injury or death.
