Drug Trafficking is a Serious Criminal Offense. Allow Bill Kennedy Law to Help

Due to Texas’s proximity to our nation’s border, drug crimes are taken very seriously, and offenders are kept under lock and key. Anyone who has driven to Mexico knows or has heard of what a car search is like. If you thought TV drug crime dramas were intense, just wait until you are facing drug trafficking charges in real life.

Drug Trafficking vs. Possession with Intent to Distribute

Possession with intent to distribute and drug trafficking sound very similar, but the difference comes down to scale. Drug trafficking charges are incurred when greater amounts of drugs are found, often with large amounts of money. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), drug trafficking is a federal crime, which means the following can land you with between five and 40 years in prison and fines between $5 million and $25 million:

  • Cocaine, Over 500 Grams
  • Heroin, Over 100 Grams
  • LSD, One to Nine Grams
  • Methamphetamine, Five to 49 Grams Pure or More Than 50 Grams Mixture


Other drugs (specifically higher amounts of them) and second or higher offenses garner more jail time and even higher fines. These charges may seem ludicrous or like a joke, but they are really not. If you are charged with drug trafficking, you need to consider hiring an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible and hesitate when speaking to authorities or anyone else about your case.
