There is a broad array of criminal acts involving drugs that one can be charged with in Orlando. These charges are frequently prosecuted very heavily in our city, as drug crimes make up a large majority of all criminal activity that takes place in Orlando. Drug offenses that one can be arrested for include drug possession, drug distribution, drug cultivation, and drug transportation and illegal possession or sale of prescription drugs.
