Drug crimes cover a broad range of offenses involving illegal substances, from possession and sale to manufacturing and distribution. These crimes entail violations of federal and/or state law. Depending on the particular circumstances of a case, these offenses can result in an extensive range of possible criminal and administrative consequences, including probation, property forfeiture, prison, and partaking in a court-ordered drug treatment program. This is why it is imperative that you immediately retain an experienced drug crimes lawyer in Miami if you are facing any type of drug charges.

The following are several drug offenses and their corresponding penalties:

  • The possession of marijuana, in any quantity, is punishable by up to 1 year in jail and a minimum fine of $1,000 for a first conviction under federal law. Any further convictions and greater amounts of marijuana result in much more severe penalties. The sale of less than 50 kilograms of marijuana is a felony under federal law, punishable by 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
