Drug Trafficking: State vs. Federal Charges
Drug trafficking charges can be either state or federal (or both), depending
on when and where you transport your drugs to. If you transport drugs
over state lines, your case will likely be heard in federal court, possibly
in addition to state court in Indiana.
Indiana Uniform Controlled Substances Act
The majority of Indiana’s drug offense are governed under the statute
known as the Indiana Uniform Controlled Substances Act, found in Section
35-48-4-1. This statute defines large-scale drug offenses, like many drug
trafficking charges, as felonies, carrying heavy penalties.
Penalties for drug trafficking can include:
- Large fines
- Prison time
- Drug rehabilitation classes
- Loss of rights
The exact nature of your charges will depend on numerous factors, including
the type of substance you are found in possession of, how much of it,
your intention with them, where you are found with them, and more. Consult
