Whether you are facing charges of possession, possession with intent, cultivation, distribution or federal charges in a marijuana case, get in touch with our firm immediately. A full review of the evidence that led to your arrest should be conducted as quickly as possible. As a person facing criminal accusations, you could feel that there is little hope to avoid conviction – this is far from true. It is astonishing how many errors in police procedure we have uncovered over our years defending those facing drug charges.

The authorities, both at the state and federal level are heavily involved in the "war on drugs," as the state is considered to be a "gateway" for various controlled substances that enter the country. The penalties imposed for marijuana crimes are far more extreme than in some other states, and a conviction could be a disaster. For example, when an individual is found to be in possession of up to 20 grams of marijuana, the penalties imposed could include up to 1 year in jail, as well as a fine of $1,000. For more than 20 grams, a fairly minor amount of the substance that certainly could be for personal use only, felony charges will be filed, and the penalty can include up to 5 years in state prison and $5,000 in fines. In cultivation cases, for only 25 plants, you could face up to 15 years in prison and a fine of $10,000.
Marijuana Sales Charges in Panama City
If you are accused of selling up to 25 lbs. of marijuana, you can expect a penalty of up to 5 years in prison, with fines as high as $5,000. For 25 to 2,000 lbs. (or 300 – 2,000 plants in cultivation) the penalties imposed can include up to 15 years in state prison, with a $25,000 fine. There are more serious penalties imposed for larger quantities, and in cases in which it is alleged that your case involves a large scale drug distribution enterprise. Your prior criminal record can also impact the sentence imposed by the court in a conviction. You cannot take changes with your future.
