Definitions And Legal Explanations
Simply possession of marijuana often refers to the misdemeanor offense of possession of less than 20 grams. The arresting officer can either arrest the person for this crime or issue a “notice to appear” and release the person at the scene.
Many people assume that because they received a “notice to appear” without being formally arrested and booked into the jail that the charge is not as serious. Regardless of whether you were taken to jail or released at the scene with a notice, the charge is the same. Possession of marijuana is a criminal offense that comes with criminal penalties.
The attorneys at Morse & Morse, LLC, are focused on criminal defense and fighting marijuana crimes. Gregory and Amy Morse are members of the NORML, an organization that fights for the reform of marijuana laws in the State of Florida and throughout the country. We aggressively defend our clients charged with misdemeanor possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis with the goal of achieving the best possible result for each client.
Beware Harsh Penalties
A conviction for possession of marijuana less than 20 grams under Florida law will result in a two-year suspension of your driver’s license and a dramatic increase in your auto insurance rates, without any possibility of a hardship or business purpose only driver’s license for the first year.
Any instance of driving during the first year will result in an additional delay in obtaining a business purpose only or hardship license for the duration of the suspension period. Additionally, a conviction for possession of marijuana less than 20 grams will cause a permanent blemish on your criminal record.
