Drug Smuggling Charges in Las Vegas

Under Nevada law, drug smuggling is described as knowingly or intentionally selling, manufacturing, delivering, or bringing into the state controlled substances such as heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, Ecstasy, PCP, or unauthorized prescription substances such as hydrocodone, oxycodone, Xanax, Valium, or other narcotics, stimulants, or depressants. How you are charged will depend on the type of drug as categorized under Schedule I through IV of the Controlled Substances Act, the quantity you are found with, whether this is a first or repeat offense, and other aggravating factors such as whether minors were involved in the incident.

Federal drug charges are more serious than state drug offenses as they involve tough federal sentencing guidelines. Whether arrested at the state or federal level, you will be looking at prison terms, heavy fines, and a future as a convicted felon which can seriously hamper employment, housing, and other life activities. All of these means that you will want to create the best possible defense that you can to minimize these consequences.
