Distribution of Illegal Drugs

Which drugs are illegal?

Distribution of illegal drugs is one of many types of drug crimes that involve selling any type of illegal drug like marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and ecstasy as well as illicitly obtained prescription drugs. Being arrested and charged with distribution is a serious legal matter and will require that you quickly obtain the services of a Brooklyn criminal defense attorney to defend you and protect your legal rights.

Typically there are two ways that people get charged with drug crimes of distribution of illegal drugs (selling) or transportation of illegal drugs (trafficking or federal drug charges).The first way is being caught in possession of a large enough amount of drugs that the assumption can be made that you intend on selling or moving them. The other is to actually be caught by an undercover police officer while in the act of selling drugs. Whatever the case may be, when you face charges for distribution, you also run the risk of being convicted of a felony offense.
