What amount of drugs is considered trafficking if Maine?

Drug trafficking laws in Maine are as follows:

By possessing over a set amount lets prosecutors pursue drug trafficking charges, regardless of what you were going to do with the drugs. The specified drugs below and the set amount that lets prosecutors charge for trafficking are:

  • 14 grams or more of powder cocaine or methamphetamine,
  • 4 grams or more of crack cocaine,
  • 90 or more pills containing any narcotic drug,
  • Pills containing 800 or more milligrams of oxycodone,
  • Pills containing 100 or more milligrams of hydromorphone,
  • 30 or more pills of MDMA or similar drugs.

It doesn’t matter to the police or the courts in Maine what you intend on doing with these drugs. Simply having them is enough to get charged with drug trafficking.

Remember, these are just Maine state laws regarding drug trafficking. The federal government also has the ability to regulate drug trafficking, as well.

If federal prosecutors want to, they can pick up state cases in Maine and tack on federal criminal charges, as well. These can increase the penalties that you could be facing.

So thankful I chose this team to represent me. They’re the best, hands down. Nathan Hitchcock proved my innocence not once but TWICE, including a trial by jury. I have a family in law enforcement who told me “Bill Bly and his team are the best. If I would recommend anyone, it would be them.”
