Ecstasy and Federal Law

Ecstasy is classified as a Schedule 1 drug per federal law, and carries serious criminal penalties for the convicted. Generally, local law enforcement will pursue and prosecute drug crimes involving Ecstasy, however, if a large amount of X-pills are discovered the United States Attorney’s Office may get involved, escalating the case to a federal level.

This can also occur if the defendant was arrested on federal property, like an airport or military installation, or if evidence shows interstate trafficking. We can help with federal drug cases as well.
