By FL Drug Defense Group |

What happens if you get criminal charges because the police find drugs in your possession, and it is the first you ever found out about having any drugs?  You can win your case if you can argue that the drugs don’t belong to you.  You could also argue that they are not drugs, but… Read More »

Dunedin Woman Could Face Life in Prison for Selling Drugs That Led to Fatal Overdose
