Drug Crimes Archives

Pain Clinics and Prescription Drugs

Over the past few years, Florida Drug Enforcement has cracked down on prescription drug abuse and the pain clinics who provide illegal drugs. Around four years ago, FL was in the middle of a terrible prescription drug crisis. 90 of the nation's top 100 Oxycodone purchasing doctors and 53 of the nation's top 100 Oxycodone purchasing pharmacies were located in the Sunshine State. In recent years, the number of doctors providing illegal drugs has been reduced by 85% and the number of pharmacies has declined by 64%. In addition, the number of pain clinics has declined from 800 to less than 500 in the state. 

Cocaine Possession Defense

In Florida or any state for that matter, if you have been charged with a drug crime involving cocaine you might think that all is lost. Not quite. Of course, there is no denying that the possession of cocaine is a serious felony offense and it is vigorously prosecuted throughout Florida. But "Possession of Cocaine" is a highly defendable charge.

Meth Lab drug charges

An odd, suspicious looking house gets busted for being a "meth lab". I guess we shouldn't be surprised. It's been a growing problem in Florida for some time now. Police are searching very closely for any clues that lead them to discovering a house cooking meth. They're looking for matchbooks with strike plates removed, or collections of discarded striker plates. Discarded vinyl or rubber tubing, to go along with glass jars and containers are a dead giveaway.

Drug Paraphernalia Problems

You could walk into almost any college dorm right now and find "drug paraphernalia". But how is it illegal, even if you are not using it? What if you didn't even know it was in the room? Or if it was a friend's paraphernalia. 

Lengthy Investigation Leads To Major Drug Trafficking Bust

Orlando MBI (Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation) have charged 18 people for drug trafficking. This all came about after a lengthy investigation was conducted by the bureau. Officials say four of the suspects have been looked at closely for several months, possibly as early since November of 2013. Central Florida law enforcement agencies worked together for this investigation and successful bust inside Orange County. They have singled out the ring leader of the suspected drug trafficking organization. The suspect has been arrested on felony charges 27 times and four times for misdemeanor crimes. Authorities say many of the suspects charged have violent criminal histories. The "kingpin" is facing 10 charges related to drug trafficking alone, as well as the illegal possession of a firearm.

Jim Irsay's case is unlike many others

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay was arrested on March 17 for allegedly operating a vehicle while intoxicated. He is still facing four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance. He also had $29,000 in cash and bottles of prescription drugs in his vehicle when he was arrested. 

Can the Florida legal system learn from Colorado?

When Colorado made marijuana legal for recreational use, some believed that they were hoping up a "pandora's box" full of weed. What's been opened instead are less crimes for possession, prisons with less non-violent criminals and $14 million within the first month of legalization. Which added over $2 million of tax revenue into the state.
