There are federal and state laws regarding the sale of illegal and legal drugs (controlled substances). Complicating factors in drug sales crimes can include immigration issues, sales to minors, previously lawful sale of medically approved marijuana, and transportation of drugs.
Unlike drug possession, the sale of drugs and intent to distribute drugs can easily result in prison time. That is why it is extremely important to work with an experienced drug crimes defense attorney if you are facing California drug sales or drug trafficking charges. Contact the Los Angeles Law Office of Marc A. Legget to speak with me in a free initial consultation.
Among the main California statutes used to prosecute drug trafficking charges is section 11352 of the California Heath & Safety Code.
