Two Men Arrested for Drug Trafficking After Police Find Instant Noodle Cup Full of Drugs in Their Car

By FL Drug Defense Group |

Those awful drug education classes that millennials had to sit through in elementary school made it sound like illegal drugs are only appealing to teenagers and people in their 20s, which, like so many other aspects of those misguided “just say no” classes, only made drugs seem more appealing to the preteen audience of… Read More »

What Would It Take to Make All Drugs Legal?

By FL Drug Defense Group |

The narrative on drug use is changing, but it isn’t changing fast enough.  Today’s teenagers have not grown up with school assemblies where teachers and students chanted “just say no” in unison or those “your brain on drugs” TV commercials with the fried egg, but they still live in a world where the criminal… Read More »

Broward Restaurant Owner Faces Drug Trafficking Charges After Police Find Duffel Bag Full of Drugs

By FL Drug Defense Group |

Buying lunch from a hot dog stand is truly one of life’s simple pleasures, and one that people are truly missing during the pandemic.  If you are a lifelong Floridian, your experience with this is probably limited to the Costco food court or a pseudo-street food experience at a Disney theme park.  If you… Read More »

Did the Police Really Have a Valid Reason to Search Your Car?

By FL Drug Defense Group |

The police searched your car, and they found drugs, so you are guilty, right?  Does this mean that your lawyer should focus on getting you a plea deal instead of fighting your charges or trying to get them dropped?  Not always.  Just because the police found drugs in your car does not mean that… Read More »

Police Seize $168,000 from West Palm Beach House and Storage Unit

By FL Drug Defense Group |

When you are accused of a crime, you are innocent until proven guilty.  Being proven guilty can mean that you enter a guilty plea, with or without a plea deal, or it can mean that you are found guilty at trial.  The only way you can be found guilty is if twelve jurors out… Read More »

Drug Court Might Not Be the Only Time Seek Treatment for Substance Use Disorder, but It Does Reduce Your Lifetime Risk of Going to Prison

By FL Drug Defense Group |

This week, Kara Fletcher, a professor of social work in Canada, published an editorial about how the language we use to discuss substance use disorder and its treatment affects society’s understanding of these issues.  Too often, ordinary conversation, the popular media, and even documents issued by the courts themselves, speak of people with substance… Read More »

The COVID-19 Pandemic Brought Out All the Substance Abuse Triggers While Making It Even Harder to Access Effective Treatment for Addiction

By FL Drug Defense Group |

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, it was obvious that the platitudes you learned in school regarding drug abuse just don’t stand up to scrutiny.  Platitudes about just saying no, about being a leader instead of a follower, and about people making wrong choices were laughably simplistic even in 2019.  In 2020, the pandemic dispossessed… Read More »

If Fentanyl Isn’t the Deadliest Drug in America, Then What Is?

By FL Drug Defense Group |

The “war on drugs” rhetoric that predominated in the last quarter of the 20th century may be a thing of the past, but fear mongering in the mass media about illegal drugs still remains.  It is true that opioid overdose deaths have increased dramatically in the past twenty years, which is scary.  It is… Read More »

Will You Get Drug Charges If You Have an Empty Canister of Whip Cream in Your Car?

By FL Drug Defense Group |

The drugs listed on various schedules in accordance with the Controlled Substances Act are there because their potential for abuse is at least as great as their potential for beneficial use.  The drugs on Schedules II through V have accepted medical uses but can only be dispensed by prescription or administered by medical professionals. … Read More »

While Researchers Investigate the Therapeutic Potential of Salvia Divinorum, the Plant Remains Illegal in Florida

By FL Drug Defense Group |

The line between “drug” as in medicine and “drug” as in recreational drug use is blurry in many contexts.  Many of the substances listed under the Controlled Substances Act have accepted medical uses.  In fact, a major impetus for the legalization of medical cannabis was that many patients found it more therapeutic and less… Read More »
