Husband is in parole, he picked up federal drug charges? If he does time federal time what happens to the parole he had before?
The parole is state. First time he picks up federal charges. He had 3 yrs left on his previous parole. When he does his federal time and gets out does he still have to do the rest of his state parole? Or does the federal picks up the state parole and he'll do state and federal together?

In all likelihood, he will do federal time, then be revoked on state parole and sent back to state prison. Hire a lawyer.
He needs an attorney ASAP. He will be sentenced to federal time and then likely have his parole violated and then get state time thereafter.

They are going to be done separately. He will do the federal time first. If he gets paroled from the feds, there may be a warrant/detainer hold waiting for him. He would then be shipped to a proper State facility to address the warrant for parole violation.
Your husband has two distinct issues he has to deal with, the new federal drug charge and his state parole violation. He certainly needs a lawyer to advise him how best to proceed. The federal charges should be handled first and then the state parole violation. It would be best if your husband can be sentenced in federal court first and then have a parole hearing before he reports to or is moved to a federal prison.
