Wow! What a surprising ruling! This type of evidence is almost always inadmissible in Florida because the probative value of the evidence does not usually outweigh the possible prejudicial affect of the evidence of prior drug use. Especially if she initially did not allow it. There is an old saying when you are a prosecutor that make the trial clean so you don't need to do it again because the conviction gets overturned by a higher appellate court. Wow, I'm very surprised by both the prosecution presenting this evidence and more surprised a judge would allow this. Maybe there is something I don't know...but I can't imagine what would make this evidence relevant.
