Can the police just stop me on the street and search me for no reason in Florida?

No, they can’t. A law enforcement officer must have reasonable suspicion of criminal activity or probable cause to conduct a search. The Supreme Court though has said that law enforcement officers can come up to you on the street and talk to you. However, you don’t have to talk to them and you can just walk away.
