Individuals who are accused of being involved in organized drug crime operations or of drug offenses that involve transporting controlled substances across state and national borders are typically faced with federal drug charges. This means that instead of being prosecuted by the state, the defendant is being prosecuted by the U.S. government.
Prison terms for federal drug convictions may be as short as a year or two in prison, or they may be as long as several decades of imprisonment. In some cases, defendants can even be sentenced to life in prison.
