Drug offenses are serious, no matter when or where they are charged. However, certain drug offenses fall under federal law—and these are among the most aggressively prosecuted charges you can face. If you are arrested on federal property or if the circumstances of your arrest involve a federal agent, you could be facing federal drug charges.
Mandatory Sentencing Guidelines
Drug charges that are filed at the federal level differ from state and local drug offenses in the severity of the charge and the potential punishment. Many federal drug crimes carry mandatory minimum sentences, which means that if you are convicted you will be required to serve some time behind bars and/or be subject to a hefty fine. These required sentencing guidelines are strict.
