It can be either a federal or state charge: marijiuana is a prohibited drug ("controlled dangerous substance") under federal law and is illegal in ND other than for prescribed medical use. Since you sent it via mail, which is federal, it will likely be a federal charge if the trace it back to you. If contacted by law enforcement, retain an attorney immediately.
