Florida Statutes Section 893.13, conveys the state penalties for felony possession. Third-degree felony possession carries with it up to 5 years in prison, while first degree is punishable with up to 30 years in prison. There can also be felony drug charges for distribution and manufacturing/cultivation of drugs. When the trafficking of a controlled substance is prosecuted as a first-degree felony, the Florida penalty can be as high as 30 years. There are also set times of incarceration that are mandatory minimums for certain types and amounts of drugs. It is also possible to get a second- or third-degree felony if an intent to distribute can be established. Manufacturing or cultivation of controlled substances can be categorized as a third-degree felony, with a maximum of five years. Making other types of drugs is considered a second-degree felony, with a maximum penalty of 15 years. Federal drug laws for trafficking are very severe as well; depending on amounts and types of the substance, an arrest can result in life in prison.
