According to several media reports, a police raid on the house of a British-Italian family has found almost 50lbs of dried basil, which the family claim is for personal use. Police raided the home of the Russo family after several reports from neighbors of pungent odors coming from the house.
The police quickly found almost 50lbs of dried basil, however, they will be unable to do anything about it due to red tape.
‘It’s red tape and the fact that dried basil isn’t actually illegal, even in large quantities,’ one officer told us.
This funny story illustrates a serious point: Drug charges are no joke!
A Florida drug arrest threatens your freedom, your civil rights, and even your driver’s license! In fact, any Florida drug conviction, even one for misdemeanor personal use marijuana, results in a mandatory driver’s license suspension.
Lots of Florida lawyers “handle” drug cases. If you have been arrested for a crime involving possession or sale or illegal narcotics, and you want to be defended, not just “handled”, call a real pro, Michael Kessler.
Wrongful arrests happen every day.
We recently saved a client from a wrongful arrest and prevented her wrongful conviction when she was accused of delivery of cannabis edibles. Thorough investigation and understanding of gas chromatography enabled us to destroy the prosecution’s case, prove that the candy was not contraband or illegal drugs, and our client received a written nolle prosse, a dismissal, without even having to shoulder the risks inherent in any jury trial.
