Is the War on Drugs racist?

Florida has a real problem with drugs presently, but it doesn't just come down to the availability of drugs themselves. One of the issues is that drug enforcement is actually racist. Looking at a report from 2015, it shows that there is prejudice in the justice system, leading to Black individuals being sentenced with more severe penalties than whites who commit the same crimes or those with similar factors.

Caught with drugs? You should understand the justice system

Understanding how court works is an important part of a strong defense. The criminal court system has been designed to be fair, to offer a quick trial and to be impartial. When you think of the criminal system, it's important to understand that you enter the system at the moment of your arrest. It's not just a trial that's important, it's everything that comes before it, too.

Insys Therapeutics the center of conspiracy theory

Insys Therapeutics is facing trouble in court over allegations that it participated in a national conspiracy to bribe physicians and pharmacists to prescribe Sybsys, a mouth-spray version of fentanyl, to people who didn't need it. The opioid medication was launched in 2012, but it didn't do as well as expected. The drug, which is a potent painkiller, could be fueling part of the nation's drug epidemic.

You can defend against drug trafficking charges

You know that giving someone else your prescriptions is against the law if you're intending to sell the drugs, but you didn't expect to get in trouble for giving someone the medications without asking for payment. Drug trafficking is a criminal offense penalized within the state of Florida; if you have a controlled substance and possess, sell or distribute it, you can be charged.

Marijuana and the law in Florida

Over recent years, marijuana and its use have been getting a lot of attention. As public opinion has moved steadily toward the legalization of cannabis for both medical and recreational use, many states have either altered their laws to reflect this position or are in the process of doing so.

'Doctor shopping' has serious consequences in Florida

People have many misconceptions about drug crimes and the people convicted of drug crimes. Some people think you have to be a hardened criminal involved with elaborate drug rings to wind up facing charges. Or people assume that you have be using or selling drugs like heroin and cocaine to be arrested.
