What are the penalties for federal drug trafficking charges?

Due to the detrimental effects of drugs and other illegal substances, Florida has enacted some of the toughest drug laws in the United States. Readers should note that many drug crimes can be prosecuted on either a state or federal level.

Federal drug charges can trigger mandatory minimum prison sentences and hefty fines.
