Possession: When you are facing possession charges, it may be considered a misdemeanor and seem minor to you. However, a conviction on any degree of drug charge may stay on your criminal record. It is important to take every drug charge, even possession, seriously in order to see that your rights and future are protected.
Sale: Possession with intent to sell, drug distribution and the sale of drugs are charges that carry more severe penalties than simple possession. The level of the charges depends on the type of drug and the amount that was being sold or allegedly was for sale.
Trafficking: Since Florida is right on the coast and ships come and go from our ports, many individuals end up facing drug trafficking charges. Our firm represents clients all along the alleged trafficking chain, from "mules" to "kingpins."
Manufacture and Cultivation: Usually applied to methamphetamine or crystal meth (in a meth lab) or marijuana (in a grow house or other operation), manufacture or cultivation charges are extremely serious.
