We Can Protect You from the Punishments of Tracking

In Florida, punishment for drug trafficking is determined by the weight of the substances you are charged with possessing. Mandatory minimums for common illegal substances include:

  • Marijuana—3 years in prison for 25 pounds or more and 7 years for 2,000 pounds or more and a $50,000 fine
  • Cocaine—3 years for up to 200 grams and 7 years for up to 400 grams and a $100,000 fine
  • Oxycodone, Morphine, Opium—3 years for 4 to 14 grams and 15 years for 14 to 28 grams
  • Methamphetamine—3 years for 14 to 28 grams and 7 years for 28 to 200 grams
  • LSD—3 years for 1 to 5 grams and 7 years for 5 to 7 grams

I n order to prove a trafficking charge, the prosecution will need to establish a few things:

  • You knowingly purchased a certain substance
  • The substance is illegal
  • The quantity was enough to qualify for a particular mandatory minimum sentence
  • You knew the substance was illegal

Trafficking resembles simple drug possession in many ways. The key differences are the more serious penalties and the fact that elements such as recorded phone conversations, confidential informants, phone records, and undercover agents may be used by the prosecution in a trafficking case.
