It is illegal for any person to unlawfully possess a controlled substance. Unlawful controlled substances include marijuana, cocaine and unauthorized prescription medications.
If a person possesses a certain quantity of a controlled substance, they can be charged with drug trafficking. The person charged need not have sold the drugs – the key is the weight of the possessed drug.
Under Florida law, a conviction for drug trafficking carries minimum mandatory prison sentences ranging from three years to life; there are also heavy fines depending on the quantity and type of controlled substance involved.
