Drug Trafficking Lawyers in Gainesville

Providing the Strong Legal Defense You Need

Drug trafficking is prosecuted harshly in the state of Florida, which is well known for its overabundance of controlled substances. If you were charged with drug trafficking, you can expect to face far-reaching and long-lasting consequences if you are convicted. Not only could you be forced to pay exorbitant fines, be put on probation, and even go to jail or prison, your criminal record will show up anytime you want to do something important in your life.

For example, a criminal record could potentially:

  • Get you fired from your current job
  • Prevent you from finding a new job
  • Prevent you from getting certain loans
  • Prevent you from getting financial aid for university
  • Prevent you from getting into college or grad school

About Drug Trafficking in Florida

In the state of Florida, the most important determining factor in whether or not you will be charged with drug trafficking is the total weight of the drugs. Depending on the type and weight of the drug you allegedly had in your possession, you may be charged and receive a mandatory minimum sentence.

A general outline of the type of drugs and their minimum mandatory amounts are as follows:

  • Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD) – 1 to 5 grams will result in a 3-year sentence; 5 to 7 grams will result in a 7-year sentence; greater than 7 grams will result in a 15-year sentence.
  • Methamphetamine (Crystal Meth) – 14 to 28 grams will result in a 3-year sentence; 28 to 200 grams will result in a 7-year sentence; greater than 200 grams will result in a 15-year sentence.
  • Phencyclidine (Angel Dust or PCP) - 28 to 200 grams will result in a 3-year sentence; 200 to 400 grams will result in a 7-year sentence; greater than 400 grams will result in a 15-year sentence.
  • Cocaine - 28 to 200 grams will result in a 3-year sentence; 200 to 400 grams will result in a 7-year sentence; 400 grams to 150 kilograms will result in a 15-year sentence; greater than 150 kilograms will result in a life sentence.
  • Cannabis (Marijuana) – Between 25 pounds and 2,000 pounds (or greater than 299 plants) will result in a 3-year sentence. Between 2,000 pounds and 10,000 pounds (or greater than 1,999 plants) will result in a 7-year sentence. Greater than 10,000 pounds will result in a 15-year sentence.

It does not matter whether or not you were planning to sell the drugs, transport them, or do anything else with them. All that matters is if they were in your possession and if so, you may be charged with drug trafficking.
