Being charged with a drug crime is a very serious matter. Criminal charges including possession, manufacturing and/or delivery can be brought against you in connection with such allegations. If you receive a conviction for these types of charges, you can face serious consequences ranging from a conviction to jail or prison time.
Recently, two men were driving motor vehicles along Florida’s Turnpike. For unknown reasons, the police decided to pull this pair of motor vehicles over.
According to the police, during the routine traffic stop, a drug sniffing dog was alerted to one of the two vehicles. The police then conducted a search of this vehicle in which police found 37 pounds of marijuana.
Police then arrested the two men. Now the two men face charges of marijuana trafficking and marijuana trafficking conspiracy and could face further counts.
What this case shows is that fighting a drug charge begins from the moment you interact with the police. What an individual needs to understand is that the police have many different tools and techniques: such as traffic stops, drug sniffing dogs and vehicle searches that they use in their drug crime enforcement efforts.
This matter also shows how being accused of committing drug crimes, such as drug trafficking, can lead to an individual facing serious criminal charges. A drug crime accusation is a very serious matter and because of this, if a person is accused of having committed drug crimes, having good representation and a strong defense can be vital.
If you’ve been arrested for drug charges (marijuana, cocaine or heroin), or any other criminal offenses, you should have the very best representation.
