  • A controlled buy:  This occurs when a person sells illegal drugs to an undercover police officer or a police informant.
  • Intent to distribute:  To show that a person intended to sell drugs or narcotics, the police must be able to point to specific circumstances which indicate drug dealing such as the presence of a large amount of cash or many small individually wrapped packages.
  • Trafficking:  In Florida, if the amount of drugs that is in a person's possession exceeds a certain weight, then you can automatically be charged with drug trafficking without any other showing of intent.
