Marijuana Laws in Florida

Though many states are moving to legalize or at least decriminalize marijuana, Florida still views marijuana as a dangerous drug and enforces strict penalties against any related crimes. Even medical marijuana is strictly prohibited in the state.

We can fiercely defend clients accused of the following:

  • Possession
  • Possession with the intent to sell
  • Cultivation
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Trafficking
  • Sales

The penalties you face will depend strictly on the type of crime and amount of marijuana involved. For example, manufacturing (or growing) marijuana with the intent to sell is considered a third degree felony, which carries up to five years in jail. However, simple possession for personal use (when less than 20 grams) is considered a first degree misdemeanor and only carries up to one year in jail. If any marijuana crimes are committed within certain distance to a school or young children, you could be facing even more severe consequences and repercussions.

No matter what type of marijuana crime you are facing, be sure to contact our firm for counsel. We can aggressively fight for your rights and make sure your side of the story is heard in court.
