Felony drug charges for 16-year-old high school student

To the north of the city of Orlando is Sanford, Florida, the location where the source story for our blog post occurred. A 16-year-old high school student was arrested on felony drug distribution charges after he sold a "weed gummy" to a girl at his school. The girl started feeling sick after she had the gummy, which prompted the school to look into the situation and, eventually the police as well. That led to the 16-year-old's arrest and the decision to press charges against him.

Drug charges are very serious, and we respect that at Lindsey & Ferry and do as much as we possibly can for our clients.

Destruction of evidence leads to dismissal of drug cases

While the following story didn't occur here in Orlando, Florida, it does show that even when a drug case seems to be destined to put away the people who are accused of the offense, a simple procedural mistake on the part of the police or prosecution can change the future.

Penalties are severe for prescription drug charges

When you hear the phrase "drug charges," you probably conjure up images of the highest level narcotics and illegal substances. Heroin, cocaine, LSD: these are substances that have always ranked high on the list for the Drug Enforcement Agency, and when someone is caught in possession of these substances or caught selling these substances, the consequences can be quite severe.

Florida passes medical marijuana measure

The presidency wasn't the only thing on the line on Nov. 8 in the state of Florida. We also had a vote for legalizing medical marijuana, an initiative that passed with a resounding 71 percent of the ballots cast in favor of the measure. The measure will give the state control over dispensaries and marijuana will still be illegal to grow for personal use. How possession of medical marijuana will work and other complexities and details about the law are still being determined.

FBI's hacking powers expanded

The FBI's job is to find and arrest people who break federal laws. But there are some civil liberties advocates who say the bureau is getting dangerously close to violating Americans' rights -- and sometimes crossing the line in its efforts to track down people suspected of downloading and distributing child pornography.
