Drug transportation is the action of transferring drugs from one location to another. If this involves the crossing of state lines, a person accused of this crime may be charged with a Federal offense, one which will involve investigation and prosecution by Federal agencies such as the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) or the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration). These agencies have vast resources and will stop at nothing to try to obtain maximum sentencing for any drug crimes they prosecute.
