South Florida Drug Crimes Defense
Possession, trafficking, sales, intent to sell – all of these drug charges are very serious. Law enforcement agencies across New York and the United States are constantly on heightened alert for individuals who are selling, buying, trafficking and using illegal or controlled substances. The criminal charges you can face for drug possession do not only apply to commonly known illegal drugs. Prescription drugs and medicinal drugs are also bought and sold recreational throughout the country. Even if you hold a valid prescription for the drug in question, you could be charged with a crime if you distributed or sold the prescription medication for any reason.
