In Ohio, drug trafficking is considered:

– Knowingly selling or offering to sell a controlled substance

– Preparing controlled substances for shipment, transport, delivery, distribution, or distributing a controlled substance with the knowledge that the controlled substance is intended for sale or resale

Drugs are classified under the scheduling system. This system is used to determine the seriousness of the drug charge and the degree of the offense. Ohio drug trafficking penalties are decided on the basis of the substance you were caught trafficking, the amount of the drug, and whether the alleged trafficking occurred around juveniles and/or designated school zones. In designated cases, Ohio law requires mandatory maximum sentences for certain instances. Furthermore, repeated drug offenders with multiple offenses in a designated period of time, and/or concurrent convictions of other felonies, are exposed to heavier sentencing because of those aggravated factors. In the federal system, your past drug offenses will also weigh heavily on the seriousness of the charge and the sentencing implications.
