Drug Offenses

Drug Offenses

A drug crime is a criminal act that involves the use, sale, possession, or distribution of illegal substances such as:  marijuana, cocaine, crack, PCP, ecstasy, heroin, LSD, opiates, or unauthorized prescription medications.  In recent years, the state of Florida has become increasingly harsh with both drug crime laws and penalties.  Any person who is convicted of a drug crime can expect to spend time in jail or prison, pay large fines, and attend mandatory drug and alcohol treatment.

Due to the severity of the legal consequences involved, it is always advisable that a person retain the services of a criminal defense attorney once he/she has been charged with a drug crime.  A criminal defense attorney can provide a client with insightful legal counsel and direction throughout the criminal process.

How an Attorney Can Help
