Florida is cracking down on people, including students attending the University of Central Florida (UCF), who are in possession of marijuana. The amount of marijuana will determine the penalties you will face if convicted. It is vital that you seek help from an attorney as soon as possible to minimize the penalties.
Attorney Corey I. Cohen has the experience it takes for your best chance of success in drug possession charges. Call The Law Office of Corey I. Cohen now at 407-246-0066 or toll free at 888-390-8937.
Severe Penalties for More Than 20 Grams
If the amount of marijuana in question is less than 20 grams, you will be charged with a misdemeanor, which carries with it up to one year in jail, one year of probation or $1,000 in fines. If the marijuana is 20 grams or greater, however, 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.
