What's the federal mandatory minimum penalty for LSD trafficking?

The United States federal government has classified the hallucinogenic drug lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) as a Schedule 1 narcotic. That means that the federal government considers it to be one of the most dangerous types of drugs. As such, being convicted of trafficking LSD will come with serious mandatory punishments.

If you are convicted of manufacturing, distributing or possessing one gram of LSD or more with the intention to distribute, the federal mandatory penalties are as follows:

  • First offense not resulting in death or serious injury: 5 years in prison
  • First offense resulting in death or serious injury: 20 years in prison
  • Second offense not resulting in death or serious injury: 10 years in prison
  • Second offense resulting in death or serious injury: Life in prison

If the LSD manufacturing, distributing or possession relates to 10 grams or more of the substance, the federal mandatory minimum penalties are as follows:

  • First offense not resulting in death or serious injury: Five years in prison
  • First offense resulting in death or serious injury: 20 years in prison
  • Second offense not resulting in death or serious injury: 10 years in prison
  • Second offense resulting in death or serious injury: Life in prison

Were you accused of a federal LSD drug violation? This is a serious charge that -- as illustrated above -- can come with serious penalties if you are convicted. As such, you may want to consider retaining a federal drug crimes defense attorney to assist you in defending yourself against the charges in court. If you can successfully navigate your criminal defense, you may be able to secure a reduction in punishments, a verdict of not guilty or another favorable result.
