Trafficking and smuggling include a variety of actions related to illegal drugs. Trafficking can include the manufacture, possession, distribution, and transportation of drugs. The type of controlled substance and the scope of the trafficking operation will determine the potential penalties that could be imposed in a conviction. Drugs such as cocaine, heroin, ecstasy and methamphetamines carry extremely heavy penalties in California. In some cases, if there was paraphernalia such as weigh scales, cash or other similar evidence, charges of trafficking will be filed, even if a minor amount of a controlled substance is found. An offender who is believed to have participated in a large scale drug trafficking operation could be subject to the forfeiture of personal property, and fines in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, as well as a long term in state prison.
