What is gbl trafficking
GBL (gamma-butyrolactone) is an industrial compound that is illegally used as a replacement and chemical precursor to GHB. GBL
and 1,4-butadiene (BD) are structurally similar to GHB, and evidence suggests that they are transformed to GHB following oral ingestion.
GHB is a depressant on schedule I. GHB misuse grew popular among teenagers and young adults in dance clubs and “raves” in the 1990s, and it became known as a date rape drug.
What is gbl trafficking?
Gamma-butyrolactone (GBL) is also known as “coma in a bottle.” Although it was originally created to treat pain, it is currently illegally and recreationally taken to induce a high. Furthermore, it induces violent spasms and is moderately dangerous due to the ease with which GBL can be overdosed.
In Florida, gamma-butyrolactone trafficking is illegal. Will Hanlon, a trafficking attorney at Hanlon Law in Tampa, understands the gravity of trafficking allegations and charges, and he works hard to provide his clients with a strong defense.

The media typically portrays drug trafficking as the work of armed drug traffickers and career criminals.
However, in Florida, you do not need to have a large distribution network to be charged with drug trafficking.
When the weight of the narcotic in question exceeds a specified limit, charges of drug trafficking are launched.
Each medicine is subject to a set of regulatory constraints, and exceeding those limits might result in legal consequences.
When a person is found guilty of trafficking Gamma-butyrolactone, the state of Florida requires judges to impose mandatory minimum penalties of incarceration and fines.
In contrast to certain other drug-related offenses, the judge cannot lessen the mandatory minimum sentence based on mitigating circumstances unique to your case.
In addition to the statutory minimum sentence, the government may seize a residence, a car, or money that investigators believe is involved to the trafficking.
Under Florida Statute § 893.135(1)(i), you can be found guilty of GBL trafficking if you actually or constructively possess, buy, sell, make, deliver, or import into Florida 1 kg or more of GBL or any mixture containing it.
Because this is a first-degree felony, you should consult with a GBL trafficking lawyer in the Tampa area to protect your rights.
