Florida Drug Possession Laws

You could be charged with drug possession if you are found holding a controlled substance you planned for personal use. If you are found holding an amount over what the law deems as personal use, you could be charged with possession with intent to sell or distribute, which has significantly harsher penalties. Furthermore, under Florida law, possession of most drugs can be charged as a felony. Felony charges can affect your ability to obtain a job, rent apartments and apply for loans, which is why it is imperative you hire a qualified drug lawyer in Jacksonville to defend you.

The sooner you retain a Jacksonville drug crime defense attorney, the better. The severity of the charges against you depends on a number of factors, including the type of controlled substance involved in the alleged offense and the activities you were allegedly engaged in. Some drug crimes—such as cultivation/manufacturing, trafficking, or sale—are considered more severe than others, such as drug possession.

Drug Charge Defense Strategies

For the prosecution to charge you with a drug crime, they must first present evidence that the substance seized was a controlled substance through crime lab analysis. Secondly, the prosecution must prove you knew or should have known the substance was in your presence. Finally, they must prove you had control of the drug at the time of the arrest. For example, if you were arrested after your school found drugs in your locker, but you shared lockers with another student, it is plausible that you were unaware they were in the locker.
