It is illegal for any person to unlawfully possess a controlled substance. Unlawful controlled substances include marijuana, cocaine and unauthorized prescription medications. Possession may be actual or constructive.
Actual possession means:
Constructive possession means the controlled substance is in a place over which the defendant has control, or in which the defendant has concealed it.
In Florida, possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis is a misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum of 364 days in the county jail. Possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis, possession of cocaine, and possession of unauthorized prescription medications are felonies of the third degree punishable by a maximum of five years in Florida State Prison.
If you are adjudicated guilty of any drug possession charge, your Florida Driver’s License may be suspended for two years.
