You might face marijuana distribution and possession with intent charges in either state or federal court. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you evaluate the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to go to trial. Consider seeking a confidential consultation.

    Lots of problems. What you did is a federal offense. Using the US mails for illegal purposes, transporting illegal substances across state lines, drug possession, drug distribution. These are just a few of the offenses you are potentially looking at.

    They will likely investigate it. It may be the federal authorities, such as the DEA, or state authorities. You should not post anything on the internet about this and should contact a criminal attorney.
