What you need to keep in mind is what law enforcement may think constitutes evidence in terms of illegal intent to distribute drugs in Florida may not be the same thing as what’s legally required to sustain a conviction for illegal distribution of drugs.

Some of the things that could be considered by a court of law in determining whether or not there is sufficient evidence to convict you of illegally distributing drugs in Florida, would be whether or not there are large sums of money or money in small denominations that accompanies the drug, how the drugs are packaged, where the drugs are found. Where you were when the drugs were found and who you were interacting with.

If you have any questions about this, you should call a lawyer. You should let a lawyer tell you whether or not you have any legal defenses to any such charge, and you should reserve any decisions that you might make about what to do with your criminal case until you fully understand your rights under Florida law.
