How a minor drug offense could result in serious federal charges

Despite the fact that state laws are starting to change considerably when it comes to offenses involving marijuana, possession, distribution and manufacture of the drug remain federal offenses. This means that in states like Florida where there are both state and federal laws that prohibit drug crimes involving marijuana, you could face state and/or federal charges if you are accused of a criminal offense.

Being proactive critical when seeking expungement

Serious criminal allegations will not just go away on their own; you will have to address them one way or another, whether that involves negotiating with prosecutors or going to court. In either case, you will need to deal with the charges against you.

If you are pulled over and suspected of driving drunk, the officer will likely administer field sobriety tests. These tests are used by law enforcement agents to highlight or reveal signs that a person may be intoxicated. Should a person fail these tests, he or she could be arrested for suspected drunk driving.
