Drug Crimes & Drug Trafficking

In the State of Florida, as in many other states, it is against the law to “handle, use, posses, or distribute” any type of “controlled substance.” Controlled substances are defined by Florida laws, but generally include non-prescription narcotics, barbituates, methamphetamines, and marijuana. Being convicted of any drug-related charge in the state of Florida carries with it serious penalties, ranging from hefty fines to lengthy prison terms.

 

Fortunately, an experienced Florida criminal defense lawyer can help you or your loved with the court system. A good criminal defense attorney will also help you understand your rights and make sure that your rights are not being violated by the legal system. Drug crimes are more numerous in the state of Florida than in other states because of the state's proximity to international waters and various ports of entry.

 

The state of Florida has enacted some of the toughest drug laws in the nation, and has dedicated a considerable amount of public funds to their enforcement. Trafficking is another drug-related charge that is also fairly common within the state of Florida. However, unlike other drug charges, trafficking carries with it much more severe penalties. If you or a family member are facing Florida drug trafficking charges, please do not hesitate to contact a criminal defense attorney that can help you with your case.

 

Florida Marijuana Crimes

Many people do not regard the use or possession of marijuana to be that serious of a crime. However, drug laws in the state of Florida, as well as many state law enforcement agencies, do not agree. The consequences of a marijuana-related conviction can be serious. The length of sentence often depends on the amount of cannabis that the defendant is in possession of at the time of arrest. Laws in Florida allow for a person convicted of a marijuana-related offense to serve anywhere from three to 15 years in prison. Fines associated with marijuana related arrests can range from $25,000 to $200,000.
