Is possession of drugs a felony offense?

Video Transcript

Is possession of drugs a felony offense? That’s actually a really interesting question. The reason is because of the use of the word drugs. In Florida, chemical substances covered under section 893 of the Florida statutes are what we describe as being drugs under the law. You can have a misdemeanor amount of marijuana, which is less than 20 grams, but if you have that marijuana turned into an oil to be consumed in a vape pen or an e-cigarette, all of a sudden that converts that same marijuana into a third degree felony, punishable by up to five years in the Florida Department of Corrections. If you are convicted of a felony drug defense, you’re facing a mandatory driver’s license revocation, a felony conviction and possible incarceration. That’s why it’s so important for you to contact an experienced attorney that knows how to handle drug offenses such as this. Even the smallest amount of cocaine, the smallest residue of an opiate or a single pill found in your possession could trigger felony consequences.
