Miami Marijuana Trafficking Charges
Marijuana Charges in Miami
At first glance, it might seem that the penalties for marijuana trafficking would be relatively light. Nothing could be further from the truth. At Hager & Schwartz, P.A., we take the defense of your marijuana trafficking case as seriously as it will be prosecuted. For 25 pounds or 300 marijuana plants you will face a mandatory sentence of a minimum of 3 years in prison. For 2000 pounds or 2000 plants it is a mandatory minimum of 7 years of incarceration. The minimum for 10,000 pounds or 10,000 plants is 15 years in prison. If your charges involved possession of a firearm, you may be imprisoned for life.
Marijuana trafficking can also be charged as a federal drug crime. When that is the case, the fines run into the millions of dollars and prison sentences are in terms of decades, not years. It is vital, therefore, that you quickly retain a proven Miami drug crime lawyer from our firm to mount an effective, aggressive defense on your behalf.
Marijuana Defense Lawyer in Miami
In our state, an individual can be charged with operating a "grow house" for marijuana in addition to the trafficking charges. In order to come down hard on the cultivation of marijuana, our legislature has recently passed into law minimum mandatory prison sentences for persons convicted of grow house charges in specific cases. We know these new laws and how to successfully fight against the charges.
In our firm, we strongly believe in aggressively pursuing the charges against you. Lawyers who take an apathetic or apologetic approach won't get the favorable outcome that you need. We have extensive experience in trafficking cases and understand the work needed to defend them. Prosecution does not have to equal conviction if you have someone on your side that is willing to fight.
