Charged With Possession of Less Than 20 Grams of Marijuana?
The amount of marijuana that is found on your person at the time of your arrest is a huge factor in the potential criminal consequences you face. If the amount is less than 20 grams, then you will be charged with a misdemeanor. A misdemeanor drug charge carries up to one year of jail time, one year of probation or $1,000 in fines as well as a two-year driver's license suspension.
If this is your first charge, we can negotiate to seek a reduction in the charges and alternative sentencing such as drug counseling or community service. In any case, we will seek the best possible result for your specific marijuana charge, whether dismissal or acquittal.
Charged With Possession of 20 Grams or More of Marijuana?
In Florida, they are cracking down on people who are in possession of cannabis. If the marijuana is 20 grams or greater, it can result in a felony charge of possession of cannabis.
If you have been charged with possession of cannabis greater than 20 grams, the consequences can be devastating and may result in prison time, felony probation, loss of your driving privileges for two years and the stigma of being a convicted felon the rest of your life.
