Defending Against Charges Of Drug Trafficking And Manufacturing

When many people think of drug trafficking, multinational cartels or high-level dealers come to mind. In reality, trafficking and manufacturing charges do not require an actual sale of drugs. Instead, Florida law presumes that you are a drug trafficker if you possess certain quantities of drugs. Thus, what seems like simple possession can in fact give rise to trafficking charges.

Both state and federal law impose stiff penalties for drug trafficking and manufacturing convictions. Depending on the type and quantity of drug involved, you could face years — even decades — in prison.
