Drug Distribution in the Military

Charged with Drug Distribution? Call Our Military Criminal Defense Lawyer!

All types of drug offenses are taken seriously by the military justice system, but certain ones can land you in especially major trouble if you are accused. This is true in the case of drug distribution. Whether it occurs in the form of social distribution, which consists of sharing drugs with friends without any type of money exchange, or if it is a case of drug sales or trafficking, charges of the wrongful distribution of a controlled substance will almost certainly lead to a court-martial. In comparison, allegations of simple drug use or possession are more likely to lead to an administrative discharge without any type of further punitive action being taken against the accused.

It is illegal and prohibited by the provisions of the Uniform Code of Military Justice to distribute any of the drugs which are included in the federal Controlled Substances Act.

These include not only traditional street drugs such as:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • LSD
  • Amphetamine
  • Hydrocodone (Vicodin
  • Oxycodone (OxyContin)
  • Benzodiazepines (Xanax)
  • Ritalin
  • Adderall

About Drug Distribution Charges

Drug distribution cases vary in terms of the severity of the charges based on several factors. For example, the punishment is likely to be more harsh in the event that the distribution was in exchange for profit or if it occurred on a military base or aboard a ship. The quantity of drugs is another major factor, since distribution cases may involve anything from sharing a single joint to selling many kilos of cocaine.
