Misdemeanor Marijuana Possession Put a Skilled and Trial-Proven Attorney in Your Corner

Misdemeanor Marijuana Possession Lawyer in Miami

Serving Miami & Fort Lauderdale Since 1998

In 2015, Miami-Dade County decriminalized marijuana possession for of up to 20 grams, allowing police officers to issue $100 civil citations or the equivalent of community service hours instead of placing offenders under arrest. However, if a person was charged with DUI using marijuana, they could face misdemeanor sentencing. At The Hoffman Firm, our Miami misdemeanor marijuana possession lawyer has the in-depth knowledge and insights to protect your rights.

Will You Be Arrested?

Thankfully, most defendants in these cases are issued a “notice to appear” instead of being arrested and taken into custody. However, even a small amount of marijuana in possession is still be a criminal offense in many areas of Florida that can result in serious long-term consequences if not handled properly.

As a first degree misdemeanor offense, a conviction for simple possession of cannabis can result in:

  • Up to a year in jail
  • Fines of up to $1,000
  • Driver’s license revocation for one year

Alternative Sentencing Options

People facing misdemeanor marijuana possession charges may be eligible for diversion programs in which successful completion can result in criminal charges being dismissed. Not all alleged offenders are eligible, though, and such participation may not always be in their best interests.

Participation in a diversion program can be just as devastating as a conviction on a criminal record for certain professionals in Florida. It is critical to discuss all particular aspects of your unique situation with an experienced criminal defense attorney in order to ensure that you pursue the outcome that does not result in serious long-term consequences.
