Orlando Controlled Substance Arrest Lawyer
Possession of marijuana, whether for recreational or medical use, is illegal in the state of Florida. The legal system treats marijuana possession charges very seriously and the penalties for possessing the substance can be unduly harsh.
Through my work at the State Attorney’s Office and my time as a criminal defense attorney, I have seen how a simple marijuana charge can impact a person’s life and seriously hinder their record, reputation, and overall well-being. As your attorney, I will use my knowledge of the law and the legal system to represent you in all aspects concerning your arrests for possession. Whether you were charged with a felony or a misdemeanor, I will represent you at all hearings and will work diligently to protect you against the penalties you face.
Is Marijuana Possession a Serious Offense?
If you have been arrested for possession of cannabis, the penalties for the crime can be unforgiving. Even being caught with a minor amount (less than 20 grams) of marijuana can land you up to a year in jail. A more serious offense of marijuana possession (more than 20 grams) is a 3rd Degree Felony and carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
Being arrested for marijuana possession is not something to be taken lightly. The charge can ultimately land you time in prison, jail, or on strict probation.
Also, a possession charge, even a minor one, can result in the loss of the person’s driver’s license for a significant amount of time. Depending on the severity of your charge, you may be required to serve time in a correctional facility or attend a drug rehabilitation program.
However minor or major you may think the charge may be, it is important to discuss your situation with a trained criminal defense attorney like me. A charge for marijuana possession could result in serious consequences and it is important to know all the options that are available to uphold your rights and protect you against the penalties you face.
