Consequences of Committing a Drug Crime in Florida

Penalties for drug crimes vary depending on the type and volume of drugs found in the possession of the defendant. The defendant’s knowledge and control of the drugs are often the basis of charges and can be the basis for defense if the accused was not aware of the nature of the drug. For marijuana and some other substances, a legal medical card or prescription can present a defense.

Penalties are further elevated if the offender is accused of drug trafficking, compared to the less serious crime of drug possession. Drug trafficking defines crimes in which a person has been transporting drugs, generally in large amounts, and with the intent to sell. These charges usually involve travel across state lines or the act of bringing drugs into the state of Florida.
