Drug Sale in Florida

 

Drug sales are all felonies, punishable by a prison sentence. Drug sale arrests typically involve the use of a confidential informant who is equipped with an audio and/or video device to record the transaction. Police officers provide money to confidential informants to purchase drugs from the drug dealer. Law enforcement frequently uses the confidential informant to perform multiple drug purchases from the drug dealer.
