Instructions and Help about Form 2220 Amended

Music hi this Mike Hebert thank you for asking me how much time can I get for possessing marijuana in Florida in Florida possession of marijuana can either be a non criminal civil infraction a misdemeanor or a felony it all depends upon how much marijuana you possess if you have less than 20 grams you've committed a first-degree misdemeanor and you face up to 364 days in jail but many Florida jurisdictions provide cops the discretion to issue you a civil infraction or a ticket you can pay that without any criminal consequence if they choose to do so however if you cross that 20 gram threshold you've committed a felony and your arrest is imminent simple felony possession of marijuana occurs with 20 grams or more up to just under 25 pounds it's a third-degree felony but if you have either 25 pounds or more or 300 plants or more you have now crossed the line from possession to trafficking and you face a first-degree felony and 30 years in prison on top of that 30 years all trafficking charges carry minimum mandatory penalties like trafficking itself these men Mane's depend upon the amount of drugs that you possess in the case of marijuana trafficking in between twenty five and two thousand pounds or three hundred and two thousand plants is a three year man man two thousand to ten thousand pounds or plants as a seven year in man and ten thousand or more pounds in plants as a fifteen year man man if you're found guilty of trafficking absent a statutory basis for departure the court must sentence you to a maximum prison term of 50 years coupled with your appropriate min man and while you get game time on your overall sentence you're gonna first serve your min man and that is day for day no gain time no time off for good behavior there are some ways around min Mane's but those are precious few and far between I thank you for your question I appreciate your having asked it and I invite you to ask me more please remember it Michael a Haber PA it's all about reasonable doubt and if you like this video please subscribe we'll be putting out more soon Music
