Transportation as a Drug Crime
Under Massachusetts law, transporting such drugs as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, prescription drugs, club drugs, and any other narcotic, tranquilizer, or stimulant listed under the state's schedules of controlled dangerous substances will result in felony or misdemeanor charges. How you are charged will depend on the Class of drug involved, the quantity, and other factors. Class A and Class B drugs are considered the most dangerous and addictive and thus result in the most severe penalties. Class A and B drugs include heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and more.
Illegal drug transportation may be considered to be drug trafficking in cases of large quantities or with other evidence such as drug paraphernalia (scales, baggies, large amounts of cash and other equipment). Every drug transportation case will be different, with its own set of factors which will determine the charges and penalties you face upon a conviction.
Any drug charge, including transportation, will give you a permanent criminal record which can be accessed on a routine background check. This can affect your future in terms of career or employment, educational opportunities, professional licenses, and more.
