Penalties for Methamphetamine Possession
According to Florida Statute § 893.13(6)(a), the actual or constructive possession of less than 14 grams of methamphetamine is a third degree felony. This means that if you are found with even trace amounts of methamphetamine on a baggie, you may be charged with a felony offense. If you are convicted of methamphetamine possession, you could face the following sentencing:
- Up to 5 years of probation
- Up to 5 years of prison
- Up to $5,000 in fines
- Mandatory, 2 year driver’s license suspension
