Hydrocodone could be detected by the urinalysis, and the prosecutor may still bring charges if the hydrocodone, or any other intoxicants in your system, impaired your driving. You should consult with a criminal law attorney that handles DUI and is familiar with attacking a urinalysis.
To avoid initially incurring court costs, you should ask that the attorney to draft a demand letter to the distributor to see if this matter can be resolved out of court. If the distributor ignores the demand, the next logical step is to file a lawsuit and attempt to collect on a potential judgment. You should speak with a business attorney on this matter.
Attorneys are problem solvers that can help narrow the scope of your issues to determine which are the most pressing and important. If a person is in a bad business situation, then I recommend that individual seek the advice and consult of an attorney to, at the very least, discuss what options are available to remedy the situation.
Because the value of the claim is in excess of $5,000.00, the special rules controlling Florida small claims will not apply--but based on your statement above, you will still file in county court. Take a look at the court's webpage, as most courts generally have very useful information, including links to rules regarding how to file (Florida Rules of Civil Procedure and the local rules of court).

I agree with my colleague. Be very careful utilizing pictures that you do not own or otherwise have the express right to use. From a common sense perspective, I would assume that your dristributor is in the business of making money--if this helps build his business too, why not approach the distributor and ask for permission. And note, if he does give you permission I suggest you get a written release.
From what you've stated, its sounds as if you have a case. Your claim, however, may be subject to arbitration depending on the contract for service. I would start by reviewing the fine print of each of the documents you signed for an arbitration clause. If such clause does not exist, or can be rendered unenforceable, then you should be able to file an action in court against the company. There are a myriad of consumer protection laws and procedural rules, and you also need to make a...
You should hire an attorney and try to negotiate a deal with the prosecutor. You son should at the very least offer to perform community service in exchange for dropped charges. Boys will be boys--you should attempt to do what you can now to avoid this going to trial.
You should file a police report and pursue prosecution of the case. Moreover, you have a potential civil action against the employee for wrongful conversion of the stolen property. I suggest you consult with an attorney.
