If you are charged by the federal government, there are certain mandatory minimum penalties for conviction. Because of these laws, judges and courts in Tennessee are not allowed to hand down sentences less than those established by the federal government. Likewise, you may face harsher penalties for selling or trafficking too near a playground or school, and transporting drugs across state lines will involve federal prosecution. Being convicted of trafficking a Schedule I drug, for example, is a Class B felony, which will result in 8 to 12 years in prison and a fine up to $100,000.
