Under the Florida statue “possession” means either actual possession or constructive possession. Actual possession means actual physical possession, such as having the substance on one’s person. Constructive possession means having the substance in a place under one’s dominion and control (such as under your car seat or in your purse).
“Distribute” means to deliver. “Deliver” or “delivery” means the actual, constructive, or attempted transfer from one person to another of a controlled substance. Methamphetamine is a controlled substance in the State of Florida.
“Sale” is any form of delivery, which includes barter, exchange or gift, or offer in exchange for methamphetamine.
- If you are accused of possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell, deliver or distribute and the amount is less than 10 grams it is a 2nd degree felony punishable by up to 15 years in the Florida Department of Corrections.
- If you are accused of possession on methamphetamine and the amount is over 10 grams it is a first degree felony punishable by up to 30 years in the Florida Department of Corrections.
- In either case you are subject to a $10,000 fine.
The prosecutors in Florida take methamphetamine charges very seriously. Part of this is because of the dangerous nature of “meth labs.” Because the prosecutors will stop at nothing to obtain a conviction, you will need an attorney who will zealously defend you and your rights.
