What are the Penalties for Drug Offenses in Florida?”

Depending on past convictions and the circumstances surrounding the current charges, drug crime convictions can result in severe consequences. These can include:
  • Probation
  • Imprisonment
  • Property forfeiture
  • A court-ordered drug treatment program

An individual's criminal history, the type of controlled substance, and the amount of controlled substance also play essential factors in drug crime sentencing, often elevating penalties. When there are prior convictions, for example, even a small amount of a controlled substance can lead to large fines and terms of imprisonment.
