Drug Smuggling in Phoenix and Arizona

Drug smuggling can involve such controlled substances as marijuana, narcotic drugs like heroin or cocaine, and dangerous drugs such as methamphetamine. This type of activity can lead to charges of drug possession, possession for sale, drug importation, transportation, or trafficking. How you are charged will depend on the quantity and type of drugs involved. Other factors that can affect the severity of the offense includes previous criminal convictions, having minors involved in the activity, and conducting alleged smuggling activities in a school zone.

The Phoenix area is part of the Arizona High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) which was created by the U. S. Department of Justice in an effort to reduce drug smuggling across the U. S. – Mexican border. The National Drug Intelligence Center reported that in 2010 the offenses most commonly investigated by HIDTA involved powdered methamphetamine and marijuana followed by cocaine and heroin. Seizures of methamphetamine by HIDTA have increased dramatically in the last few years and have resulted in a record number of dangerous drug charges being filed in Phoenix.
