Drug transportation is the illegal transference of a controlled substance with full knowledge of the presence of the substance. You can be charged with drug transportation no matter the distance which was traveled. If you are found to be carrying drugs across a national border, you will be facing federal drug charges.

If you are charged with drug transportation your penalties may include:
A skilled attorney will be able to provide you with exceptional defense. In some cases, your attorney will be able to prove that the evidence brought against you was obtained illegally and therefore not valid in a court of law. If you had a legal reason for having the controlled substances, such as a prescription from a doctor, the charges may also be dropped.
In some drug transportation cases, the one who is being charged with the drug crime had no knowledge of the presence of the controlled substance and therefore does not fall under the criteria required to prosecute.
