Florida marijuana possession laws are among the toughest in the county, and the penalties the most severe. With many states passing medical marijuana laws, there is a nationwide trended to decriminalize possession of pot.
Unfortunately Florida has not caught up to this trend to lay off the harmless pot smokers. Simple possession of marijuana is still a seriously prosecuted misdemeanor criminal offense. If you were convicted of possession of marijuana it is possible to be sentenced to jail time, even for small amounts.
Thought there is not a big risk of jail time likely for small amounts of pot, a joint or a blunt, any risk of jail time is enough to make most people very nervous.
