In Florida, an arrest on drug trafficking charges can have very serious consequences. While simple possession is usually charged as a misdemeanor, distribution of illegal drugs will generally result in a felony charge. And even a misdemeanor possession charge can have life-changing consequences, as a Sunrise, Florida police officer recently found out. He was placed on administrative leave after being arrested for possession of marijuana, and ultimately resigned from the job he had held for six years. The officer's live-in girlfriend, 21, faces felony charges of drug distribution.
