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.
