In Florida, under Florida Statute §893.13(6)(b), possession of up twenty (20) grams of marijuana is a first degree misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum penalty of 1 year in jail and a $1,000 fine.  Possession of over 20 grams is considered a felony in Florida and carries a penalty of up to five (5) years in jail and a $5,000 fine.  Frequently, first time offenders can be enrolled in a prosecution diversion program as long as the circumstances of the arrest don’t indicate the defendant was dealing or cultivating marijuana.  If the prosecution diversion program is successfully completed by the defendant, the State Attorney will dismiss the charges as part of the plea deal.  An additional benefit is that once the charges are dropped, the defendant may qualify to have the marijuana charge sealed or expunged off their record.
