Florida drug laws have recently been revised, which will affect the sale, possession, and growth of marijuana. Last year Florida voters passed Amendment 2, allowing individuals to possess and use marijuana for medical purposes. However, there are still numerous restrictions on who may lawfully use the drug and how much may be in a person’s possession. With these recent changes, it can be difficult to determine what is right and what is wrong, which can be especially frustrating if you are currently facing criminal charges.

Medical Marijuana

Marijuana has not been legalized in Florida, but it has been approved for medical purposes. Individuals suffering from severe illnesses, such as cancer, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, glaucoma, AIDS, PTSD, multiple sclerosis, or other debilitating ailments. In order to use medical marijuana lawfully, sick individuals may obtain a prescription for use from a licensed state physician. From there, the drug must be obtained from a state-approved dispensary.

Even for medical use, marijuana is only permitted through edibles or vaping, but not through smoking.

Florida Marijuana Laws

While federal laws prohibit marijuana use, many states have approved its use in varying degrees. In Florida, marijuana is currently only legal when used for medical purposes. Recreational marijuana is still illegal in Florida. If an individual has not obtained approval from a doctor to use medical marijuana, he or she could face legal repercussions if found in possession of cannabis in any form.

Possible Penalties

Illegal possession of fewer than 20 grams of marijuana could be punishable as a first-degree misdemeanor, resulting in a fine and up to 1 year in jail. If a person is found in possession of more than 20 grams but less than 25 pounds of marijuana, that individual could face up to 5 years of imprisonment and a hefty fine. Anyone found in possession of more than 25 pounds may face trafficking charges as a first-degree felony.

Trafficking charges are very serious and can result in between 3 and 15 years of imprisonment. The fines for trafficking charges are very steep, varying between $25,000 and $200,000.

Sale of marijuana can be considered either a third-degree felony or a first-degree misdemeanor, depending on the quantity of the drug sold. Subsequent offenses involving drug sale could result in up to 15 years of imprisonment.

  • 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.”

  • 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.”
