Miami THC Concentrates Lawyer
Also Serving Clients in Fort Lauderdale
While most people are familiar with the cannabis plant, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)—the primary euphoric chemical in marijuana—can be extracted to produce concentrates which are often more potent than the dried leaves people are accustomed to. While simple possession of marijuana is a misdemeanor offense, possession of any amount of a THC concentrate will result in felony charges. If you are being charged with this offense, call the Miami THC concentrates lawyer at The Hoffman Firm for help.
THC concentrates come in various forms (powder, liquid, or glob-like masses commonly referred to as ”budder”) and go by many different street names, such as “shatter,” “wax," or "butane hash oil (BHO).”
In most cases, possession of a cannabis concentrate is a third degree felony. However, if someone possesses, sells, manufactures, or delivers a THC concentrate within 1,000 feet of certain locations, they can be charged with a second degree felony.

Defending Yourself against a Conviction
A third degree felony cannabis concentrate offense is punishable by a sentence of up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. When a person is charged with a second degree felony, a conviction can result in up to 15 years in prison and fine of up to $10,000. The good news is that you can defend yourself.
Some defenses might include:
- Illegal search and seizure
- Constructive possession issues (concentrate belonged to another party)
- Legal prescription for concentrate
- Alleged controlled substance was not actually a THC concentrate
- Lack of evidence
