Being labeled a criminal due to allegedly being involved in drug activity can be mortifying. It can also have a negative impact on a person’s future, and can tarnish the individual’s reputation even if it turns out that he or she is found not guilty. One person recently was arrested on drug charges in Florida.
The man, said to be 40, was arrested on charges related to cultivating marijuana, controlled substance possession and drug paraphernalia possession. Police said they were told that the man was growing pot in a particular backyard as well as in a field nearby. Authorities then found the owner of the home with the backyard in question, and the homeowner permitted police to conduct a search of the vicinity.
