Our Seminole County criminal defense lawyers bring over 30 years of combined experience, having managed thousands of cases.

Is Selling Drugs a Felony in Florida?

In Florida, selling drugs is a felony, and the degree can increase depending on the drug and where you are selling the drugs. In addition, selling cocaine is generally a second-degree felony with a maximum of 15 years in prison. Selling marijuana, prescription drugs, and most other controlled substances is a third-degree felony with a maximum prison sentence of 5 years. Consequently, selling drugs within 1,000 feet of a church or school can elevate the charge by one degree. First-degree felonies can result in a prison sentence of up to 30 years. A prison sentence can further harm those struggling with addiction. However, most judges understand this and often prefer to offer rehabilitation programs instead of prison sentences if the defendant agrees.

 

Florida Drug Trafficking Laws

Current Florida law defines drug trafficking as having the intent to sell, deliver, purchase, possess, manufacture, or transport a specific amount of a controlled substance. Each drug has a different minimum amount that triggers trafficking charges. Depending on the situation, you might face jail time or fines.

The following quantities are the minimum thresholds required to bring a drug trafficking charge in Florida:

 

At the present time, penalties for the minimum amounts of drugs include a maximum prison sentence of three years and fines of up to $50,000.
