Drug Smuggling

What are the penalties for drug smuggling convictions in Florida?

Drug smuggling is a criminal act that involves the illegal transportation of controlled substances such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, LSD, prescription medication and others as defined by Florida State law. There is a high threat of drug smuggling activity in Florida due to its extensive coastal borders, closer proximity to other nations known for having drug operations in the United States, and the large number of international hubs that allow passengers to arrive from many countries via aircraft. There are a variety of penalties that may be assessed according to key factors such as the type of drug being smuggled as well as the quantity, but all convictions carry the threat of long prison terms in state or federal prison as well as other punishments, including forfeiture of assets and property.

Although unfortunate, many criminal drug organizations enlist the help of innocent bystanders and willing volunteers to smuggle illegal substances into Florida for distribution throughout the United States. In some cases, smugglers knowingly ingest or possess the drugs on their person or in their luggage. In other cases, innocent victims may become an active agent in a drug smuggling operation without even realizing it.
