Drug Crime Laws
Drug crimes are prosecuted at both the state and federal levels in the United States. The strategies of investigation and prosecution continue to improve from the government’s concerted efforts. Criminal drug prosecutions are becoming more common due to the dramatic improvement of tools used for investigation. These tools can include very sophisticated technology and well-planned surveillance tactics. However, the prosecution approach varies from agency to agency. Some law enforcement agencies are known for targeting the top leaders of the organization for prosecution while other agencies prefer to start their investigation at the ground floor of criminal drug rings. Every year these investigations advance in their ability to identify and charge drug crime offenders.
