The first things that the state of Florida reminds us of are beaches, sun and oodles of fun but it is also one of the biggest ports for the trade of cocaine.
In Florida, cocaine amounts for almost 60% of the drug-related arrest even though drug abuse here is at par on an average with the rest of the country.
The cocoa plant is responsible for the production of both crack as well as powder cocaine but for crack, the material is further processed. And possession of crash is far harshly punishable that powdered cocaine is.
Most of the arrest related to cocaine depend of how you are handling the drug - possession, sale as well as trafficking.
