Title 21 U.S.C. § 954 prohibits the transshipment and in-transit shipment of a Schedule I controlled substances unless for scientific, medical, and other legitimate reasons with written approval from Attorney General. The movement of drugs across both state and federal borders is considered drug smuggling.
