Federal drug trafficking is the trafficking of narcotics illegally obtained of illegal substances, whether it’s possession with intent to deliver or distribute or actual distribution. Conspiracy is often used in the federal prosecution of any sort of drug case, usually involves some degree of trafficking where the person is charged with possession with intent to distribute just based on the quantity or the evidence that shows that he intended to distribute even if the distribution had not occurred yet and usually the difference between that and state is at the federal level, the scope of the investigation and the quantities are usually much more and much higher.
