Drug Possession: Charges and Penalties
Florida State law dictates some of the most serious penalties for drug-related offenses in the entire United States. While many states have begun to adopt a more lenient approach or have rewritten those laws, Florida continues to maintain a hard line with drug offenders. Arrests for drug crimes like possession consistently put non-violent offenders behind bars, and can have life-long impacts. The specific penalties levied at conviction will depend heavily on the type of drug, the quantity and the intent of the accused. Some types of controlled substances will result in a felony possession charge even in cases involving a very small amount of the drug, such as cocaine, meth, ecstasy, heroin and others.
A minor marijuana possession charge is the least serious drug offense, and one of the most commonly charged. Often overlooked by inexperienced attorneys is the fact that some charges are actually filed cases in which illegal search & seizure took place or there were other serious errors or rights violations by law enforcement.
