Fighting for your freedom in Florida and throughout the United States. Case Results In the News

Could I Go to Jail for Possessing Marijuana in Florida?

Although attitudes about the use of marijuana are rapidly changing throughout the country, most states still uphold strict laws against the possession, sale, cultivation and distribution of this drug – including Florida. In fact, you could be sentenced to hard time in jail for possessing even small amounts of cannabis. For this reason, you should not take these charges lightly if you or someone you love was recently arrested for marijuana possession in Florida. With the help of a Miami criminal defense lawyer from Seltzer Mayberg, LLC, you can launch an aggressive defense against your charges and combat the harsh penalties that are imposed upon convicted drug offenders—which may include:

Less than 20 grams (first degree misdemeanor):

  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Up to 1 year of probation
  • Up to $1,000 in fines

More than 20 grams (third degree felony):

  • Up to 5 years in prison
  • Up to 5 years of probation
  • Up to $5,000 in fines

If you are found to be in possession of marijuana plants, even if they are strictly for personal use, you could also be charged with a felony offense—which could result in up to 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine. If more than 25 plants are uncovered, the penalties could be increased to 15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Additionally, you could face more serious charges if the police suspect that you had intended to sell the marijuana that was found in your possession (i.e. it was individually packaged). In any case, it is important that you do not face your criminal charges alone. When you enlist the help of the Miami criminal defense attorney from Seltzer Mayberg, LLC, you can trust that your future is in capable hands.
