Treasure Coast Drug Offense Attorney
Florida laws regulating drugs, legally known as “controlled substances,” are numerous and varied. For an idea of how many types of drugs are regulated in our state, see Florida Statue 893.03. Any of the following acts pertaining to these substances may form the basis for an arrest and criminal prosecution:
- Possession with intent to sell
- Sale, distribution, and/or delivery
- Manufacturing or cultivation
- Possession of paraphernalia
The penalties for the crimes listed above range from probation, mandatory addiction counseling, and fines, to long mandatory prison sentences. An adjudication of guilt for the mere possession of a controlled substance, like marijuana, results in a one year driver’s license suspension.
