Trafficking & Distribution

Rancho Cucamonga Drug Trafficking & Distribution Attorney


In California, drug trafficking and distribution refer to the illegal activities involving the sale, transportation, importation, and distribution of controlled substances. These substances can include illegal drugs like cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, LSD, MDMA (ecstasy), and others. Drug trafficking typically involves larger-scale operations that move drugs across different regions, while distribution involves the sale and dissemination of drugs on a smaller scale within a specific area. Both drug trafficking and distribution are serious offenses under California law, carrying significant penalties that can include imprisonment, fines, asset forfeiture, and other legal consequences.

California law defines drug crimes as a broad category that includes a range of offenses. These crimes can range in severity depending on the type of drug involved, the quantity of drugs involved, and the circumstances of the crime. The penalties for drug crimes are also dependent on the type of drug involved and the circumstances of the crime.

California Drug Distribution & Trafficking Laws 

Drug trafficking and distribution laws in California are governed by both state and federal statutes. The California Health and Safety Code, particularly Sections 11352-11379.8, addresses various offenses related to drug trafficking and distribution. Here are some key points:

1. Controlled Substances: The law prohibits the possession, sale, transportation, importation, and distribution of controlled substances such as narcotics, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy, and more.

2. Punishments: Penalties for drug trafficking and distribution can vary depending on the type and quantity of drugs involved. They may include fines, imprisonment, probation, mandatory drug treatment, asset forfeiture, and more.

3. Enhancements: Certain factors can lead to enhanced penalties, such as prior convictions, involvement of minors, large quantities of drugs, and use of firearms during drug-related activities.

4. Federal Laws: Drug trafficking offenses can also be prosecuted under federal laws, which may carry severe penalties and involve federal agencies like the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) or Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

5. Proposition 47 and Proposition 64: These voter-approved propositions have brought some changes to drug-related offenses, particularly with regards to certain non-violent drug possession offenses and the legalization of recreational marijuana.

It's important to consult with a knowledgeable attorney to understand the specific drug trafficking and distribution laws applicable to your situation. Laws and penalties can vary based on the nature of the offense and individual circumstances.
