Brevard County Marijuana Grow House Lawyer

Marijuana Grow House Defense Attorneys in Melbourne, FL

If you have been arrested in Brevard County, FL for Cultivation of Marijuana or have been accused of maintaining a Marijuana Grow House operation, you need an aggressive, experienced legal representation as soon as possible. When it comes to indoor marijuana cultivation, Florida is one of the nation’s leaders. Grow houses have been found in more than two-thirds of Florida’s counties, and over 1000 hydroponic operations have been discovered in Florida to date. Recent Florida laws have increased the penalties for cultivating marijuana plants. Cases involving marijuana grow houses have received increased media attention in recent years. Because of the new laws and media hype, Florida prosecutors have pursued these cases vigorously.

Marijuana Grow House Eradication Act

In 2009, the Florida legislature passed the Marijuana Grow House Eradication Act. The act sought to strengthen Florida’s Grow House Laws in response to increasing numbers of grow house operations being discovered by law enforcement. In summary, this law makes it a second degree felony to grow 25 or more plants, no matter how small or large those plants are. A second degree felony carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison. The law also makes it a first degree felony to grow 25 or more plants in a home with children present. A first degree felony is punishable by up to 30 years in prison. The threat of incarceration is real. Your best defense is a criminal defense attorney with experience defending against grow house – related charges. Contact us today.
