Can I be charged for drugs that belong to my roommate?

College students listen up.  You can be charged with possession of anything your roommate possesses that is either illegal under Florida Criminal Law or against campus policy.  This means weapons, drugs, drug paraphernalia even historic decorative ninja swords (true story).  It may not seem cool, but tell your roommate to get rid of the illegal stuff, or report it to the RA.  You do not want to get caught on campus, in campus housing with contraband.  You could be kicked out of campus housing or even suspended from school.

Outstanding service from lawyer Grant Ian Schwarz.

Lawyer Grant Ian Schwarz provides outstanding service. I recently hired him for my case earlier this year and on the day of the trial it got dismissed with ease. Not only did that case get dismissed but my first case three years ago got dismissed as well with Grant by my side. Mr.Schwarz is a reliable lawyer who I would recommend to anybody having any sort of legal issues. Grant is an extremely caring lawyer who will answer all questions that you have and will respond to any e-mails, texts, or phone calls that you send his direction. I cannot forget to mention his confidence in the courtroom is amazing and it truly shows his greatness. Grant Ian Schwarz is the right lawyer for you. Thank you for everything Grant.
