Types of Federal Drug Charges
The prosecution of a federal offense in relation to drugs will vary with consideration as to whether the crime consisted of simple possession, possession with intent to distribute, sale, trafficking, manufacturing controlled substances, or cultivation. Law enforcement primarily prosecutes marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and ecstasy. Federal drug crimes also include any action involving narcotic drugs or medications for which an individual lacks an appropriate prescription (if any at all). Examples of these drugs are Vicodin, Xanax, and Oxycodone.
