Drug Trafficking


The definition of this charge is extremely broad and may encompass the actual transfer of drugs, the offer to transfer drugs and a transfer of a substance which is not a drug but is purported by the accused to be a drug. The prosecution does not bear the burden of proving that the accused intended to profit from the alleged transaction.

Possession of Drugs for the Purpose of Trafficking


Proof of the intent to traffic typically includes factors such as the quantity of drugs, the type of packaging and observed transactions. A profit motive is not required to be proven; the prosecution must simply prove that the accused intended to transfer the drugs to another person.
