Felony Drug Crimes in the State of Florida

Because South Florida was once the center of importation and distribution of narcotics into the United States, law enforcement officers in Broward, Dade, and Palm Beach tend to focus their efforts on narcotics interdiction. Because of this, even individuals who only use drugs recreationally are often targeted by police officers. In many cases, police officers will try to use a possession charge as leverage to get the individual who has been arrested to give up his or her dealer. They may offer to make a felony possession charge “go away” if only he or she gives up the person who sold it. Before you make any admissions that can be used against you in a criminal proceeding or start providing information to the police, contact criminal defense attorney Michael Salazar to discuss all of your options.
