Why are federal authorities involved?

You can face federal charges for a drug crime depending on the specific nature of your alleged offense.

Factors which can have you tried in federal court include:

  • Excessive amounts of drugs possessed
  • Violation of interstate commerce laws
  • Violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO)
  • Money laundering or tax evasion
  • Conspiracy
  • Suspicion of involvement in a continuing criminal enterprise
  • Injuring another person with or without a weapon
  • Drug trafficking, manufacturing, or cultivation

Any crime involving drugs which in some way crosses state lines will automatically be charged as a federal crime. Trafficking in between 50 and 99 kilograms of marijuana, for instance, can put you in prison for up to 20 years and cost you $1 million in fines for a first offense.
