Fort Pierce Drug Possession Lawyer

Aggressive Defense Against Possession of Drugs & Paraphernalia Charges

An arrest for drug possession is a very serious matter.  While some people assume that possession is not as serious a crime as say trafficking, the truth is that possession charges can land someone in jail or prison just as much as trafficking charges can.  If you have been arrested for drug possession or possession of drug paraphernalia, you need to take the appropriate steps to protect your rights, freedom, and reputation.  By contacting an experienced Fort Pierce drug possession attorney like Jerry Roden, you can ensure your case is given the aggressive defense needed to help you in the legal goal of beating your charges.

Florida Drug Possession Laws

In the state of Florida, it is a crime to be in possession of an illegal substance, such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, Ecstasy, methamphetamine, mushrooms, etc., and possession charges could lead to a conviction punishable by anywhere from 1 month to 30 years in prison and $1,000 to $10,000 in fines.

It is also illegal in the state of Florida to possess drug paraphernalia.  The law defines paraphernalia as “all equipment, products, and materials of any kind which are used, intended for use, or designed for use in planting, propagating, cultivating, growing, harvesting, manufacturing, compounding, converting, producing, processing, preparing, testing, analyzing, packaging, repackaging, storing, containing, concealing, transporting, injecting, ingesting, inhaling, or otherwise introducing into the human body a controlled substance.”

If you are found in possession of drug paraphernalia, not only will it be confiscated by law enforcement officials, but you will also face criminal charges.  Possession of drug paraphernalia is a first-degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.  Furthermore, if actual drugs are found on your possession, the prosecution may use the paraphernalia as evidence against you in court.
