Drug crimes are among those offenses most frequently prosecuted in Florida. These crimes can range from low-level misdemeanors based on simple possession of unlawful drugs tor high-level federal felonies of interstate drug trafficking. Either way, drug convictions can have a lasting effect on your life due to the criminal record you will have when seeking employment, housing, professional licenses, or advanced education. They can also have a negative impact on your immigration status if you are a noncitizen.

Our firm handles all types of drug charges, involving illegal controlled substances and unauthorized prescription medicines. These can include:
- Drug possession
- Possession with intent to sell
- Sales and distribution
- Drug paraphernalia possession
- Drug trafficking
Your charges will generally depend on the nature of the offense, the quantity of drugs found, whether minors were involved, whether deadly weapons were involved, and whether you have prior convictions. Drug crimes at the federal level are the most serious; these commonly involve large-scale drug operations and are punishable by federal prison sentences, heavy fines, and probation.
At the state level, you may also be facing jail or prison time, fines, and probation. However, Florida has established an alternative to first-offense nonviolent drug offenders that focuses on treating addiction as opposed to punishment through incarceration. This is known as “drug court.”
Drug court is a voluntary program. It involves drug treatment through individual and group counseling, regular drug testing, and attendance at support meetings while also regularly meeting with your probation officer and before a judge for case reviews. Those who successfully complete the program can avoid jail time and may avoid convictions added to their criminal record.
