Minor Charges Can Still Have Long-Term Consequences
Even a misdemeanor conviction can have serious penalties in Florida. Possession of under 20 grams of marijuana is considered a first-degree misdemeanor and can result in up to a year in jail. About the same amount of cocaine can result in much harsher consequences. Being caught with less than 28 grams of cocaine is a third-degree felony. Anyone convicted of cocaine possession faces up to five years in prison, as well as fines. If caught with more than 28 grams of cocaine, an individual is automatically charged with drug trafficking, a first-degree felony.
