Marijuana and synthetic drug charges

Are you facing charges of marijuana or synthetic drug possession? If you are, you don't need to face them alone. Drug charges in Florida can carry some stiff penalties and are the kind of charges you really don't want on your record. They can have long-term consequences, such as finding a job in the future; they may even affect your current job.

Many people make the mistake of thinking that synthetic drugs are not illegal; however, in Florida, they are. Drugs commonly known as Spice, K2, bath salts or synthetic marijuana are made from man-made chemicals. These chemical drugs are very popular with young people. Among high school seniors, they are the second most popular drug after marijuana.

The Food and Drug Administration's Safety and Innovation Act of 2012, which was signed into law by President Obama, also includes the Synthetic Drug Abuse Prevention Act. That act puts 26 different types of synthetic cannabinoids and cathinones into a category with other controlled substances. Florida, along with 43 other states, has taken a proactive enforcement stance to get these drugs off the street.

If you have been arrested on marijuana or synthetic drug charges, we can help you with your defense. There are many factors to any arrest, and we will investigate your case to ensure that officials have not erred during their search and seizure. If they violated your rights in any way, the evidence may not be valid in a court of law. For instance, did they have good cause to search you or your property? We can also negotiate with prosecutors on your behalf. Don't take your charges lying down - fight back!
