Drug trafficking is defined as transporting, importing, or selling illegal drugs, but criminal charges are often based on the quantity involved. While this type of drug crime is a violation of the Texas Controlled Substances Act, bringing drugs across the United States border from Mexico to Texas to sell or distribute is a federal crime. A conviction for drug trafficking can result in years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.
