Drug Trafficking Offenses in Las Vegas, Nevada
In Nevada, drug trafficking is defined as intentionally selling, manufacturing,
delivering or bringing into the state large amounts of controlled substances.
Drug trafficking charges are based off of the amount of drugs involved
- so even if you were only in possession of a large amount of drugs for

Penalties for Drug Trafficking
The penalties you will face will depend upon the type of drug caught in
your possession. Drugs are categorized by schedules. You can be charged
with drug trafficking if you were caught in possession of a Schedule I
or Schedule II drug.
Examples of the schedule of drugs:
Schedule I drugs - You must possess four grams or more to be charged with drug trafficking
or 100 pounds of marijuana or more. This schedule includes Heroin, Cocaine,
Methamphetamine, Marijuana, Ecstasy, LSD and GHB.
Schedule II drugs - You must possess 28 grams or more to be charged with drug trafficking.
This schedule includes PCP, doctor-prescribed Cocaine or Methamphetamine,
Oxycodone, Morphine, Opium, Demerol, and Adderall.
Drug trafficking charges are prosecuted fiercely in Nevada. If you are
convicted of possessing a Schedule I drug between 4 and 14 grams, you
will be charged with a felony and will face up to 6 years in prison and
a fine up to $50,000. If you are convicted of possessing a Schedule II
drug weighing at least 28 grams but less than 200 grams, you will be charged
with a felony and will face up to 5 years in prison and a fine up to $50,000.
The higher the quantity of drug, the harsher the penalties.
