Drug Trafficking Lawyers in California
Drugs are very prevalent in our society today. Prescription drugs as well as recreational or street drugs are very commonly abused among people of all ages, races and social classes.

Commonly Trafficked/Sold Narcotics
Any drug or narcotic can be used in drug trafficking. Street drugs such as methamphetamine, marijuana, hashish, cocaine and heroin are very commonly trafficked in various amounts. In more recent years prescription drugs have gained notoriety as commonly trafficked narcotics. This may be largely due to their availability on the internet. Prescription drugs such as muscle relaxers, anti-anxiety medications like Xanax or Valium, and painkillers such as Oxycotin, Oxycodone, Vicodin, Norco’s and Percocets are commonly bought in large quantities and resold for a profit. Depending on the amount and type of product you are caught with will determine the actual charge.
Legal Consequences of Drug Trafficking/Sales Charges
Often times a drug sales accusation is coupled with a conspiracy charge. This means that you are intending to commit a crime or crimes with another person. In court, a prosecutor may not even have to prove you sold drugs or that a crime was committed. They merely need to demonstrate that two or more people united in an effort to commit a crime. Conspiracy charges, which are always a felony, also carry severe legal ramifications. Drug trafficking charges alone can lead to very heavy fines, court costs, probation and imprisonment. Regardless of the charge a drug crime conviction can permanently impact your freedom, your future and your reputation. A skilled, aggressive and tenacious narcotics crime defense attorney can help you.
