What are Drug Crimes?
Florida State and Federal laws are strict when it comes to drug crimes and drug trafficking. A drug crime is considered to be any criminal act involving the possession, use, or sale of illegal substances.
Types of Illegal Drugs
Illegal drugs include:

- Property forfeiture
- A court-ordered drug treatment program
An individual's criminal history, the type of controlled substance, and the amount of controlled substance also play essential factors in drug crime sentencing, often elevating penalties. When there are prior convictions, for example, even a small amount of a controlled substance can lead to large fines and terms of imprisonment.
