Trafficking in Fentanyl – how much Fentanyl must be seized to constitute Trafficking?

In order to be charged with Trafficking Fentanyl in Massachusetts State Courts the amount at issue must weigh at least 10 grams. If the amount seized is less than 1o grams you may only be charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute. The Fentanyl “trafficking” statute is found at G.L. c. 94C, s. 32E(c1/2). The Fentanyl “distribution” statute is found at G.L. c. 94C, s. 32A.

So far there is only one penalty assigned to trafficking Fentanyl

That penalty is listed below:

10 grams of more – State Prison for not more than 20 years.

Note: the greater the weight the more likely you are to be charged in Federal Court.
