Even first-time offenders who made a momentary mistake or simply didn’t know that what they were doing was illegal could face serious and life-changing penalties upon conviction. The state may even require mandatory minimum prison sentences – even for first-time offenders.

Defined as the intentional act of selling, purchasing, manufacturing, delivering, possessing or transporting controlled substances, drug trafficking offenses carry serious penalties. Florida Statutes 893.135 provides for minimum and mandatory prison sentences and fines for drug trafficking. Your penalties can be enhanced depending on the amount and the type of drug that you have been accused of trafficking.
Much like drug trafficking charges, possession of controlled substance charges can be increased or decreased depending on the type and the amount of drugs involved. Our firm can defend your rights if you have been arrested for possession of marijuana, cocaine, illegal prescription medications or drug paraphernalia.
Although the state of Florida has been taking steps toward passing medical marijuana laws, illegal possession of marijuana can lead to significant penalties. Even for first-time offenders, illegal possession or use of marijuana can carry mandatory penalties. If you were arrested for possession, sale, delivery, trafficking or possession of marijuana paraphernalia, call our firm immediately.
