Fort Myers Drug Possession Lawyer

Possession of a Controlled Substance in Florida

Having one or more illegal substances such as cocaine, marijuana, or heroin in your possession is enough to create a wave of criminal charges against you. Even having "legal" prescription drugs can become a possession charge if you are deemed as illegally possessing them.

This can be a daunting experience for anyone and minors can be dramatically overwhelmed by the implications of their actions, or guilt by way of association (hanging around the wrong crowd). Drug possession charges can escalate into complicated matters of whether or not there was intent to distribute the drugs in question.

Many things can affect the attitude of law enforcement, making your case a sensitive matter, but evidence such as the following can place you in a difficult position:

  • Drug quantity
  • Drug quality (grade)
  • Condition of the accused during questioning
  • Subsequent behavior displayed upon being arrested

If you want to help yourself (or someone you love) find your way out of the drug possession nightmare, call on Calvo & Calvo, Attorneys at Law to start the process of finding the right defense without delay.
