Federal Drug Charges
Federal drug charges were originally codified by the Federal Government under The Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act. This piece of legislation classified federal drug charges into schedules according the nature of the offense and the substance in question.
The Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act defines (among other offenses) the following federal drug charges:
■Drug Possession: possession of a controlled substance without authorization (prescription)
■Drug Manufacture: the manufacturing of substances prohibited by Federal law
■Drug Trafficking: distribution of substances prohibited by Federal law
■Drug Conspiracy: any act which facilitates the manufacture, distribution or importation of substances prohibited by Federal law
