Alabama Drug Trafficking Laws & Penalties
Generally speaking, trafficking refers to importing or exporting a large amount of drugs into or out of the United States or moving drugs across state lines. That being said, simply trading or selling any amount or type of an illegal drug is considered trafficking. The penalties for drug trafficking are incredibly strict, and while the punishments do vary based on the type and quantity of drugs involved, you could be sentenced to:
- 3 years to life in prison
- More than $50,000 in fines
- Probation or Parole
- Forfeiture of personal assets
Certain factors can undoubtedly enhance the degree of your penalties. For examples, if you are found in possession of a firearm while trafficking drugs, or if you are a part of a criminal group or organization, not only will you face enhanced penalties, but you could also face additional criminal charges as well.
