Drug Charges in Florida

In Florida, drug crimes include possession, manufacture, cultivation, distribution, or trafficking of a controlled substance. This may include illegal drugs, such as marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines, or heroin, or prescription drugs, such as painkillers, without a valid prescription.

Drug charges, such as:

  • Drug Possession – Drug possession is a charge that involves possession of a drug for personal use. The person did not manufacture, distribute, or sell the substance. Possession may be a misdemeanor or felony charge, depending on the amount, type of drug, and other factors.

  • Drug Manufacturing & Cultivation – People may be charged with manufacturing illegal drugs, such as methamphetamine or cultivation for illegally growing marijuana. Involvement in any part of the production process could result in felony charges.

  • Drug Trafficking & Distribution – The specific charges depends on the type and amount of drug. For a minor offense, possession with an intent to sell may be a misdemeanor charge. However, this could also be a felony charge, depending on the circumstances. Drug trafficking is a first-degree felony.

The possible penalties for conviction depend on the type of drug, the specific charges, any prior convictions, and other factors. If convicted, you could face large fines, mandatory treatment, and jail or prison terms. In some situations, mandatory minimum sentences may apply.
