Strict Laws; Serious Consequences in Florida

Florida has very little tolerance for illegal drugs, jumping straight to a 3rd degree felony charge for possession any amount of most illegal drugs. Likewise, Florida is also extraordinarily strict on prescription drugs due to a history of issues with addiction and illegal trade of painkiller medications.

  • Your penalties could vary, depending on:
  • The type of substance you are found in possession of
  • The amount of that substance you are found in possession of
  • Where you are found in possession of it
  • Your intent in possessing it

For possession of any amount of drug, including cocaine, meth, or many other drugs, you could be facing a 3rd degree felony, meaning a potential prison sentence of five years and a $5,000 fine. Unlawful chemicals, including ecstasy or GHB, could land you a 2nd degree felony (up to 15 years in prison; $10,000 fine). Possessing more than 10 grams of heroin is considered a 1st degree felony (up to 30 years in prison, $10,000 fine).
