South Florida and Drug Possession - Trace Amount vs. Consumable Amount

In South Florida, would you be arrested if you have a trace amount of drugs with you? In most states, whether you are carrying a trace amount or a consumable amount of a controlled substance, it IS possession.

In all of South Florida’s jurisdictions such as Miami, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach County, Miami-Dade County and Broward County, as long as the substance can be chemically identified, it is possession.

If you or someone you know is being accused of being in possession of a controlled substance, you need to call an experienced criminal defense attorney.
