She Did What?
She Did What?
I just read
something in the news that has got me wondering.
woman in Florida…of course it was Florida…was arrested along with 20 others for
solicitation and trafficking in heroin.A serious charge, but this was only newsworthy on a national scale as

History.—s. 1, ch. 2001-114.
I should have known; it is only an offense in Florida.So, if you are in Florida and planning to
break the law, do not discuss or plan said law breaking on a cell phone or
