Types of Drug Crimes & Associated Penalties
Florida law includes many different types of drug crimes, and each one can carry significant penalties. Drug crimes can either be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the severity of the crime, the amount of controlled substance involved, prior convictions, and other factors.
Drug crimes can include:
- Possession of marijuana, controlled substances, or drug paraphernalia
- Possession of marijuana or controlled substances with the intent to sell
- Trafficking of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, or other narcotics
- Prescription medication fraud or forgery
- Cultivation of marijuana
Conviction for drug crimes can result in a wide range of penalties. Juveniles who have been charged with any drug crime will not only risk having a permanent criminal record but can also have difficulty obtaining government student aid, scholarships, loans or grants, and can often experience difficulties advancing in their personal and professional lives.
