Selling drugs
It is no secret that the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency works hand in hand with local and federal law enforcement agencies to reduce the drug trafficking that moves through the state. Trafficking in schedule d drugs is a crime of intent, which means that the prosecution must prove that the defendant intentionally or knowingly sold drugs.

You don't even have to make money selling drugs in order to be charged with drug trafficking under Maine's criminal law. Drug trafficking is legally defined as a criminal offense that involves the manufacturing, importing, exporting, distribution or dispensing of a controlled substance. Additionally, drug trafficking can also be the possession of a controlled substance with the intent to manufacture, import, export, distribute or dispense.

Drug Trafficking: a federal offense?

When drug trafficking crosses the state line, it becomes a federal offense that can be prosecuted by a federal prosecutor in a federal courtroom. Federal drug convictions for trafficking generally carry harsher penalties and longer sentences ranging from three years to life in prison, but the specific penalties will depend on the following factors:

  • The type and amount of the controlled substance involved
  • The location where the defendant was apprehended (may result in aggravated trafficking charges)
  • The defendant's criminal history

To avoid being convicted of transporting or selling a controlled substance, it is always wise to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney who you can trust to provide you with strong and reliable defense.
