You can defend against drug charges

As someone who is accused of a crime, it's in your best interests to move quickly and develop a solid defense explaining your actions. Every case is different, which is why it's wise to work with someone who understands the ins and outs of the law along with how the specifics of your case could affect the charges and implications of a conviction.

Florida State University quarterback faces drug charges

Deondre Francois, a Florida State quarterback, has been working hard to recover from a previous injury and to impress his football coach. However, despite all his good intentions, a two-month drug investigation led to a search warrant being issued for his home in Tallahassee. There, the police discovered a mixture of marijuana and tobacco along with other drug-related items.

Florida legislators seeking changes to drug laws

Legislators in Florida are calling for drug reform, and that reform could be positive for you if you face drug charges. There are bills seeking judicial discretion for mandatory minimum sentences, which would allow judges more leeway in deciding on a person's sentence. Along with this legislation, lawmakers also hope to increase the total funding for substance abuse treatment. They would like to add another $50 million to the budget for substance abuse treatment alone.

Why is questioning forensics important?

If forensic science is misapplied to your case, it could be a chance for you to fight for your freedoms. When evidence is collected, it has to be treated appropriately. If it's lost or tampered with, there is a possibility to have the evidence restricted and prevented from reaching the court. If that happens, the prosecution may not have enough of a case to charge you.

Don't let a drug paraphernalia charge scare you

Possession of drug paraphernalia is a crime unlike any other -- you are essentially charged with a crime for merely owning something that might be used to get drugs into your system. It doesn't matter if you have any drugs in your possession or have ever even used drugs -- simply owning the objects themselves is a crime.

What's the current state of Florida marijuana law?

If ever there was an issue that is a legal moving target, it has to be marijuana. Headlines are filled with news about how the drug, banned under federal law, is slowly being decriminalized at the state level. Florida is now on track with many other states in allowing marijuana for medical uses. It has not joined those states that have gone so far as to legalize recreational use of the product.
