Arrested for Marijuana in Tampa?
State and federal laws outlaw the selling or possessing of marijuana in any amount. If you or a family member has been arrested for or charged with an offense related to marijuana, you should consult an experienced Tampa drug crimes attorney immediately. It is possible to go to jail for marijuana offenses, particularly where large quanties or distribution is involved. At Hessinger & Kilfin Law, we have extensive experience with marijuana related crimes, from simple possession to highly sophisticated grow operations. Early intervention in your case by our legal team can have a significant impact on the outcome.
Under state law, possession of 20 grams or less is a first degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Growing any amount of marijuana is a felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. The same applies to possessing more than 20 grams, or selling any amount up to 25 pounds.
Sale of more than 25 pounds constitutes trafficking, and carries much stiffer penalties.
