Miami Drug Crime Attorney
Charged with cultivation or trafficking?
In the last few decades South Florida has become infamous for its high volume of d rug related crimes. In the 1980s the massive influx of cocaine from South America drew the attention of the state and federal authorities. While illegal controlled substances are still a problem, the focus has recently shifted to prescription medication and those unauthorized to distribute and dispense prescription drugs. Depending on the substance at issue, the charges could range from a simple misdemeanor to a serious felony. Both the Federal Government and the Florida State Government are pushing for more stringent laws punishing those convicted of drug offenses. South Florida is especially tough on enforcement and penalties regarding drug related crime. In Fort Lauderdale alone, approximately thirty percent of all arrests are drug related. Do not become a number.
