Can the police just stop me on the street and search me for no reason in Florida?
Absolutely not. Common sense dictates that if you have done nothing wrong, law enforcement cannot conduct a criminal investigation. However, common sense also dictates that if law enforcement is seeking the ability to search you, they probably believe that you have conducted some criminal behavior. So, in that instance, you calmly tell the law enforcement officer that you are not consenting to a search and if the officer has probable cause for your arrest that you comply with the officer.Back To Drug Crimes Law Videos FAQS
