Sheriff's deputies in Florida arrested an 18-year-old man on drug charges in Sarasota. Police say that they found the teenager in his car counting cash with a bag of marijuana next to him. Authorities approached the man's vehicle after receiving reports of drug deals happening in the parking lot of a fitness center. They later arrested the man and charged him with selling drugs.
Federal drug charges usually fall under five different categories. They include: paraphernalia charges, possession charges, manufacturing/delivery charges and dealing charges. The severity of punishments relating to these offenses depends on the facts, evidence and other issues relating to the federal drug crime at issue.
A young Florida woman was recently taken into custody by authorities in Washington County and is facing drug charges. Authorities had been searching for the 25-year-old woman ever since a warrant was issued for her arrest. Until her arrest, authorities wanted her as a fugitive from justice due to her alleged connection with drug sales activity in the area.

One man was recently accused of engaging in drug sales in Florida. A person who is charged with selling drugs may naturally be panicked about whether he or she will end up being convicted and sentenced. However, the person has the right to defend his or her innocence.
Although the rules and regulations governing marijuana have changed in some states, when it comes to cocaine, the substance is still just as illegal as ever. Indeed, Florida state officials are particularly steadfast in their targeting of potential offenders for arrest and conviction on cocaine-related offenses, and federal officials even more so. When it comes to federal law, though, because federal drug crime conviction could come with longer time spent in jail and limited possibility for parole, if you are accused of a federal drug charge, a well-thought out and strategic defense strategy may be required. But how do you end up in the federal system in the first place?
Since drug-related allegations are taken very seriously in Florida, the consequences if convicted on such charges can be quite severe. Drug sales, possession and drug trafficking are three of the most common drug-related charges. Each type of charge carries a different level of punishment depending on the circumstances surrounding a person's arrest.
Police have taken two individuals from Florida into custody and accused them of dealing drugs. The drug sales arrests were made in Union County on a recent Wednesday afternoon. The two men, ages 34 and 57, were charged with drug possession, using electronic devices for drug sales and transactions, and intended delivery of drugs. They were also charged with possessing a spring assisted weapon.
A Florida grocery store owner has been accused of trafficking drugs. According to authorities, the man was taken into custody following reports that he was selling drugs at his business. Detectives say that the 46-year-old entrepreneur was selling hydrocodone inside a school zone.
According to federal authorities, several men from Florida planned to smuggle approximately 1,000 pounds of pot into the United States. Authorities say that the men hoped to give the marijuana to drug dealers in Broward County who would distribute it and sell it illegally. The men accused of federal drug trafficking charges were reportedly unaware that the boat captain in charge of conveying the marijuana was actually an undercover federal agent working for the Drug Enforcement Administration.
