Drug Crimes | Skilled Legal Defense For Your Case

Being arrested for a crime involving drugs is a scary situation with many unknowns. You may be wondering if you are going to jail, or how much you may owe in fines. Drug crimes can range from a misdemeanor offense to being a serious felony charge, and these charges can quickly escalate based on the drugs and other behavior involved.

Since drug crimes often lead to increased criminal activity, Florida state law takes them very seriously and increases the penalties for the seriousness of the offense. At Canan Law, our team of attorneys has years of experience defending drug charges and helping to mitigate the jail time or fines involved.

We can help defend drug crimes such as:

  • Selling an illegal substance
  • Providing chemicals or manufacturing a controlled substance
  • Drug trafficking or the illicit trade of any drugs
  • Possession of drugs, whether for personal use or to sell
  • Any drug activity near a school or building inhabited by children
  • Possession or sale of marijuana, aside from the medical use of marijuana

Hefty Penalties For Drug Crimes

If you are facing a misdemeanor drug crime, you may be facing up to one year in jail plus court costs, mandatory treatment or home detention. If the drug charge involved a felony, you would likely be facing two to 30 years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines. This depends on the drugs involved in the crime and the amount sold or found in your possession.
