It is illegal to possess marijuana, otherwise known as cannabis. The marijuana laws in the state of Florida are strict. Possession of 20 grams or less of marijuana is a misdemeanor. A misdemeanor drug conviction can carry significant consequences. It is punishable by up to a year in jail, a year of probation and a $1,000 fine. Additionally, your driver’s license can be suspended. If you are charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, trafficking in marijuana or cultivating marijuana, you will face felony charges punishable by prison, probation and significant fines.
