What is Drug Transportation?

Drug transportation is the criminal act of transferring, transporting, or distributing drugs.  Drug transportation is actually a commonly committed crime in the state of California and is vigilantly prosecuted by law enforcement.  Transportation is categorized as a drug crime and may be classified as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on a number of different factors.  Criminal classification will usually depend upon the type of drug being distributed, the amount of the drug being distributed, if the defendant intended to sell the drug, and the defendant’s prior criminal history.

Charged with “Intent to Sell”

Drug possession for sale is the criminal act of having an illegal narcotic on one’s body with the intention of selling the narcotic to a third party.  And drug distribution is the criminal act of distributing an unlawful uncontrolled substance.  Drug distribution is similar to drug trafficking, but operates on a much smaller scale.  When people distribute drugs, they usually do so with the intent to sell the narcotic for profit.  The crimes of drug distribution and drug possession for sale frequently tie in together.
