Orlando Drug Possession and Trafficking LawyerDrug Crimes can subject you to lengthy periods of incarceration. There are several types of charges involving drugs such as possession, sell and delivery, trafficking and possession with intent. The severity of the criminal charge varies based on the specific facts of the case including the type of drug and the weight. The State of Florida has passed Minimum Mandatory Sentencing on many controlled substances. If you have been charged with a crime involving drugs, you need to consult with an attorney about your case.
Pill Mills and Prescription Drugs
The State of Florida has extended the “war on drugs” to include prescription drugs. Florida has made the weight to reach a minimum mandatory sentence low relative to the weight for other drugs like marijuana, crack cocaine, and powder cocaine. It can take only a handful of pills to reach the necessary weight to be considered trafficking and triggering the minimum mandatory sentencing.
