Case Dropped – 5/2/2016
Client’s vehicle was stopped and searched. Law Enforcement found a brand of synthetic marijuana called K2, something they claimed was a “controlled substance” and arrested Client for a 3rd Degree felony. Earlier that day, Client had purchased K2, over the counter, at a gas station. Unbeknownst to both the Gas Station and Client, 6 days prior, Florida’s legislature made possession of K2 a 3rd Degree Felony punishable by 5 years in prison. Longwell Lawyers successfully argued that Client lacked the required knowledge of the substance’s illicit nature.
