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.

  • As difficult as criminal cases are, there's nothing like having an attorney that responds to your calls or actually answers them.

    “As difficult as criminal cases are, there's nothing like having an attorney that responds to your calls or actually answers them. Greg seemed to actually care about me. He was extremely helpful in getting through this very difficult time in my life. Got a great and unexpected result; very impressive. Lots of lawyers out there are Chevys; it's refreshing to get a Mercedes Benz. It's difficult to find quality people in this world and I hope I continue to have a rapport with Greg in the future; he’s a good man.”

  • Best lawyer hands down!

    “After 3 probation violations I was facing a minimum of 20 months in prison. At my first appearance, I witness Greg get one of his clients out of jail and trust me, his record and charges were outrageous. Naturally, I asked him for Greg's contact. I'm writing this review because Greg I was released from custody and was able to modify my probation to terms that makes sense! Not to mention, he somehow got me a withheld adjudication. In over 5 years on probation I've never had a lawyer fight for me so hard. Greg goes to war for his clients.”

  • Very responsive and available.

    “This guy is fantastic. There isn't another attorney I would rather have standing next to me in the courtroom. His straight shooter, no nonsense approach was reassuring. I knew I had hired the right guy when, at our first court appearance he was praised (almost gushed over) by the judge for his "excellent writing abilities" and someone with a "bright future ahead". At that moment I knew Greg was my man. What other lawyer responds to a mistaken text sent at 11:30pm? Outstanding service. Very responsive and available. Unpaid endorsement from a satisfied client.”
