While marijuana laws have been overhauled and reformed in some other U.S. states, Florida has remained a harsh place to be charged with any drug offense. Simply pleading guilty or facing a drug charge without a skilled defense lawyer is a major risk many people later regret.
If you have been arrested with a significant amount of marijuana or accused of running a grow house, your need for a dedicated criminal defense lawyer is clear and urgent. It is far less widely known how serious the consequences can be after an arrest for possession of a small amount of marijuana. We urge you to contact us for clear guidance on what you are up against and options you may have for protecting your record and future.
Will You Go to Jail? How Seriously Will a Drug Conviction Damage Your Future?
By the letter of the law, you can receive up to a year in jail for possessing less than 20 grams of marijuana. You can receive up to five years in prison for possessing a greater amount. In addition, you are subject to a two-year driver's license suspension. Perhaps most importantly, any drug conviction on your record can be devastating to your job prospects.
