Florida Drug Trafficking Crimes

Drug trafficking is a serious crime in Florida and is punishable as a felony. The penalties for drug trafficking vary depending on the type of drug and the amount trafficked, as well as the criminal history of the defendant. Individuals who have been convicted of drug crimes in the past will likely be penalized more severely as repeat offenders.

According to the Florida Statute Section 893.15, the following rules are in place to prevent and control drug abuse:

  • Marijuana: Trafficking between 25 and 2,000 pounds of cannabis, or between 300 and 2,000 plants, can result in a minimum 3-year prison sentence and a $25,000 fine. Individuals found guilty of trafficking between 2,000 and 10,000 pounds, or 2,000-10,000 plants, will receive a minimum 7-year prison sentence and a $50,000 fine. Trafficking more than 10,000 pounds of marijuana may result in 15 years in prison and a $200,000 fine.
  • Cocaine: Penalties for cocaine trafficking may include a minimum 3-year imprisonment for between 28 and 200 grams, and can result in a $50,000 fine. Trafficking between 200 and 400 grams may result in a minimum 7-year sentence and a $100,000 fine, while trafficking between 400 grams and 150 kilograms may result in a minimum 15-year imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. If an individual is caught trafficking more than 150 kilograms, he or she may face life imprisonment without parole, which is a first-degree felony.
  • Heroin: Trafficking 4-14 grams of heroin can result in a minimum of 3 years in prison and a $50,000 fine, while 14-28 grams may lead to a mandatory 15-year sentence with a $100,000 fine. Individuals found guilty of trafficking more than 28 grams may face more than 25 years in prison along with a $500,000 fine.

Other drugs, including hydrocodone, oxycodone, LSD, MDMA, and methamphetamine are also punishable by law and can result in prison sentences between 3 and 15 years, or more, as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines.

  • He was professional, punctual, friendly and on-point.

    Previous Client

  • Intense. Communicative. Professional.

    “Retained Mr. Rosenfeld (Greg) on quick notice after 'interviewing' several other attorneys. The work he performed made it clear the choice was right. Greg was constantly in communication and available 24x7 (refreshing change) and very responsive (don't take for granted - many lawyers are aloof and reapond to what they feel they need to vs. all client concerns). He handled the case from a techincal level with precision and this resulted in a favorable outcome. Greg was very transparent about fees - nothing to hide or surprise and he didn't try to scare excess fees out of our pockets in contrast to others. Finally, Greg's perspective as a former Public Defender really makes him a passionate advocate for the accused. Talking with attorneys who were former prosecutors made me feel like they lapse back into their former role's perspective and may not always have your back 100%. Greg was really outstanding in every respect and I fully expect to see him flourish with an outstanding reputation in private practice by continuing to exceed clients' expectations.”

    John

  • Exceptional defense attorney!

    “I found Greg Rosenfeld to be an experienced, aggressive compassionate defense attorney. I hired Mr. Rosenfeld to defend my daughter in a criminal case. I have hired other attorneys in the past and have found that most attorneys are attentive and engaged up until the moment they are paid. We had the opposite experience with Mr. Rosenfeld who stayed in constant communication, worked harder than any lawyer I've met and got results that far exceeded our expectations. He kept fighting when most would have given up. I think very highly of him both as a person and as Criminal Law Defense Attorney. Great job and I will gladly recommend you to anyone who needs an excellent Criminal Lawyer.”
