Misdemeanor Drug Crimes


The Salazar Law Firm of Fort Lauderdale represents individuals who have been arrested for misdemeanor drug crimes in South Florida. If you have been arrested or issued a notice to appear (NTA) for being in possession of a small amount of cannabis, you need to take your charges seriously. Many people are under the false impression that Florida is one of the states that has decriminalized marijuana possession; that’s not the case. Even being caught with a small amount of pot, or a pipe or a bong with trace amounts of THC can land you in a Broward, Palm Beach, or Dade County jail. If you are given a notice to appear and you ignore it, the judge will issue a warrant for your arrest. Michael Salazar has over two decades of experience defending individuals who have been accused of misdemeanor drug crimes. Don’t take a misdemeanor drug charge lightly. Call the Salazar Law Firm immediately.
