UNDERSTANDING DRUG CRIMES IN FLORIDA
Florida has strict laws governing drug offenses, including the possession, distribution, manufacture, and trafficking of controlled substances. Drug crimes can range from minor misdemeanors to serious felonies, with penalties that may include fines, probation, mandatory drug treatment programs, and imprisonment.
COMMON DRUG CRIMES IN FLORIDA INCLUDE:
- Possession: Being found in possession of a controlled substance, even a small quantity, you can be charged with drug possession.
- Trafficking: A drug trafficking charge depends on the total weight of the controlled substance in your possession, not upon proof of selling or transporting.
- Manufacturing: The unlawful production or cultivation of controlled substances.
- Prescription drug crime: Misusing or fraudulently obtaining prescription medications. Having a forged prescription in your possession can lead to felony charges and a mandatory minimum jail sentence if leading to a trafficking weight.
- Marijuana: Possession of as few as 25 marijuana plants is a second-degree felony, which can put you in jail for 15 years if you are convicted.
