Drug arrests in Florida can happen for a variety of reasons. These issues can affect anyone, even those who work at regular jobs.

A drug charge could stem from a wide variety of situations in Florida and elsewhere. It could occur during a traffic stop, when an officer sees controlled substance in plain view, during a search subject to an arrest, when a search warrant is served or when police officers suspect suspicious activities occurring in public areas and investigate the situation.

With the exception of prescription drugs used by the person they were prescribed to, most Florida residents are well aware that drugs are illegal to use and sell.
