The Trouble with Benzodiazepines

By FL Drug Defense Group |

At first glance, benzodiazepines do not seem like the most dangerous drugs.  The most well-known ones are Valium (diazepam) and Xanax (alprazolam), which seem harmless enough.  They are not the most illegal of illegal drugs; they are Schedule IV controlled substances, which means they are in the same category of legality as prescription sleep… Read More »

Florida is one of the hardest-hit states by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Although spring break merrymakers hesitated to leave Florida’s beaches, and the vendors whose bread and butter depends on tourism were sad to see them go, Florida has joined other states in realizing that it will take more to slow the spread of the… Read More »

Will Legal Recreational Weed in Florida Become a Reality in 2020?

By FL Drug Defense Group |

Celebrities do it.  Baby boomers do it.  Young people do it.  Nature lovers do it.  Slackers do it.  Spiritual seekers do it.  Florida’s cultural landscape is so diverse that there is no single “typical Floridian,” but one thing many denizens of our sunshine swing state can agree on is a love of cannabis and… Read More »

Vero Beach Man Charged with Selling Cocaine and Methamphetamine

By FL Drug Defense Group |

The idea that you are not hurting anyone else by possessing drugs is gaining support.  While the prison population still includes people serving long sentences for possessing a single dose of an illegal drug, there is a growing sentiment that this is unfair.  Laws in the United States are still quite far from the… Read More »

“Operation Deal Breaker” Leads to 30 People Being Charged with Selling Drugs in Areas Frequented by Children

By FL Drug Defense Group |

Crimes both minor and major get more severe punishments if they affected children or put them in danger.  For example, drunk driving is always against the law, but it is worse if a child is in the car with you.  Not wearing a seatbelt will get you a traffic citation, but transporting a young… Read More »
