If you are facing federal drug charges, you should take prompt legal action. Mandatory minimum sentencing applies to federal drug crimes. This means that anyone convicted of a federal drug crime must be imprisoned for a minimum amount of time — even for a seemingly minor offense such as drug possession.

Federal vs. State Drug Charges
A number of circumstances can lead to federal drug charges over state drug charges. Maybe you were arrested by a federal officer or a member of the Drug Enforcement Administration. Or you may have been arrested for a drug crime involving a large quantity of marijuana. There are additional circumstances that could land a case in federal court.
