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.

  • Best attorney in south Florida!

    “Greg Rosenfeld provided excellent legal representation. I can't say enough about the work he performed. He is second to none.”

  • His composure, actions, and performance truly speak for what he is specialized, overly qualified, and destined to do!

    “First and foremost, I would love to thank this man beyond measures for the outstanding job he has done for me personally and the great relief he has bestowed upon my family. In January of 2017 I was charged and humiliated with a crime I was falsely accused of and was looking at a life sentence. Even with all the neglect from the detectives, I was incarcerated in jail nearly a year until Mr. Rosenfeld was able to persuade the judge and state attorney to release me back home with my family on house arrest for the remainder of the state's case proceedings. Upon that time, he also was able to accommodate me further by removing the strict regulations of the county's house arrest program and substitute it with a private company so I was able to still provide for my family with having so many obstacles that could potentially violate me and send me back into the jail. He has always given me nothing but respect and professionalism even when there were days when I was overly upset, emotional, and downright in wrong how I lashed out towards him behind the frustrations of my case. His composure, actions, and performance truly speak for what he is specialized, overly qualified, and destined to do! I can sit here proudly today and say I am a free man without any prosecution thanks to Greg and I highly recommend him to any and every person no matter the case big or small Mr. Rosenfeld can handle them all. Sincerely, his most satisfied customer.”
