Los Angeles Drug Trafficking Attorney
Have you been arrested for drug transportation?
In the state of California, drug trafficking is classified as a
federal crime. Drug trafficking includes a number of different types of drug violations,
including their procurement,
distribution and sale. Illegal drugs like
heroin and LSD are not the only substances that could get you charged. Transportation
of prescription drugs such as painkillers and antidepressants could also
be classified as drug trafficking. A
Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer could assist in defending you against these charges.
The penalties for drug trafficking are extremely severe. You could be put
in prison for life and charged exorbitant fines. When an individual has
been arrested for this offense, it usually means they have been under
investigation for quite some time. A substantial case may already be built
against you, making your situation very serious.
Not only could you be facing local law enforcement, but the DEA (Drug Enforcement
Administration) and FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) could be pursuing
you as well. Since they have more resources and manpower, the prosecution
will be more difficult to fight. If you attempt to prove your innocence
on your own, there would be little chance of success. Seek strong representation
from a Los Angeles drug trafficking lawyer at Martinian & Associates INC.

UNODC, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, has become a leader in
the global fight against illicit drug activity. In all regions of the
world, UNODC operates via a widespread network of field offices, intensely
working in its efforts to combat transnational crime particularly as it
pertains to drug trafficking.
As defined by the UNODC, drug trafficking is the globally illicit problem
involving the cultivation, manufacture, distribution and sale of illegal
substances. As such, the program is constantly monitoring – and
researching – the drug market worldwide in its efforts to obtain
comprehensive information and a thorough understanding of the criminal activity.
Every year, the global program releases a World Drug Report with statistics
of drug use across the globe. Focused solely on providing countries in
every continent of the world with information and statistics related to
the globe's drug trafficking problems, UNODC has become quite the
threat to those individuals that have been accused of such activity.

and Crime, and as such, you will need a defense attorney that is equally
as familiar with the office and how to combat its findings and research.
