Tampa FL Drug Crimes Lawyer

The war on drugs officially began in 1971 by the Nixon Administration, and now 40 years and over a trillion dollars later it is still going strong.  Unfortunately while drug laws have become increasingly harsh, illegal drug use is at an all time high and today approximately 17 percent of incarcerated persons in Florida are there for drug related offenses.

 Today, in Florida, many drug charges carry minimum mandatory prison sentences which can range anywhere from 3 years to 25 years.  Additionally, if charged in federal court, some drug offenses may trigger mandatory life sentences.

In Florida, common drug offenses include:
     - Drug Possession
     - Drug Possession with intent to sell
     - Drug Distribution
     - Drug Manufacturing
     - Drug Trafficking
     - Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
     - Possession of certain Prescription Drugs

The collateral consequences of a drug conviction can be significant

All drug offenses involve strict legal punishments. If a person is convicted of a drug crime, he/she may be punished with: imprisonment, monetary fines, court-ordered rehabilitation programs, probation, community service, and drug offender registration.  Additionally, a convicted drug offender may also lose his/her driving privileges, the ability to obtain student loans, and the opportunity to work in certain fields.
