Penalties for Marijuana Charges in Florida

If you are facing marijuana charges, one of the first steps to take is to consult with a Tampa drug crime defense lawyer. You may be at risk of facing harsh penalties and an entirely changed future if you are found guilty of any marijuana related crime.

Mandatory minimum sentences for marijuana crimes include:

  • - 300 to 2,000 Plants: 3 years / $25k fine
  • - 2,000 to 10,000 Plants: 7 years / $50k fine
  • - 10,000 or More Plants: 15 years / $200k fine

The penalties for a marijuana crime will vary greatly depending on the alleged offense, as well as the amount involved. Simple possession of a small amount of marijuana may be charged as a misdemeanor offense. Possession with intent, distribution, trafficking, or cultivation of marijuana is typically a felony offense that may be punishable by years in state prison, depending on the particular offense.
