Marijuana Charges – Legal Trouble in Florida
Treasure Coast Marijuana lawyer
Marijuana is the most frequently used illegal substance in Florida and the United States. Although states throughout the country have amended their laws regarding marijuana, Florida’s marijuana laws remain particularly harsh. Charges and convictions can lead to severe punishments, including both criminal punishments and additional indirect consequences.
One of the most severe consequences of a marijuana offense is its effect on your ability to legally drive. A conviction for any marijuana charge under Florida law will result in a six-month driver’s license suspension. Other indirect consequences may include being unable to obtain certain financial aid for educational purposes and public housing.
