Florida is one of 29 states in which medicinal marijuana is legal but recreational use remains illegal. Individuals who have not legally obtained a prescription for medicinal marijuana may face drug possession charges; and depending on the circumstances, they may face additional charges for drug paraphernalia and trafficking.

Arrested For Drug Possession
Drug possession is a criminal charge for someone who has marijuana, or any other type of controlled substance, in their possession. Whether a person is charged with misdemeanor or felony drug possession charge depends on the quantity of marijuana in their possession at the time of the arrest. Yet, there are exclusions for legally obtained and possessed medical marijuana.
Possession of up to 20 grams of marijuana is a first-degree misdemeanor in Florida. Penalties include up to one year in jail and court costs.
Possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana is a third-degree felony with penalties of up to five years in prison.
Possessing more than 25 pounds of marijuana is a first-degree felony in Florida. Penalties include up to 30 years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines.
Arrested For Drug Trafficking
Drug trafficking is the delivery, intentional sale, manufacture, possession, purchase, or transportation of marijuana into Florida. This charge occurs when individuals are arrested with at least 25 pounds of marijuana or at least 300 marijuana plants.

Arrested For Drug Paraphernalia
Drug paraphernalia refers to any item that may be used to create, ingest, or use a controlled substance such as marijuana. Common types of marijuana paraphernalia include rolling papers, pipes, and bongs.
