Florida Law on Drug Possession with Intent to Sell

Florida Statute 893.13(a) states that “it is unlawful for any person to sell, manufacture, or deliver, or possess with intent to sell, manufacture, or deliver, a controlled substance.” Florida’s Controlled Substances Act contains a list of substances grouped into five (5) different “Schedules” or classifications. The degree of the crime and the potential penalties for Possession with Intent to Sell differ based on which schedule of drug was possessed. The “intent to sell” element must be proven by specific facts and circumstances which amount to more than mere possession.

Potential Penalties

Although the following penalties are the statutory penalties for this drug offense, keep in mind that these penalties can increase depending on: (1) the type and amount of substance, (2) whether a weapon was present or used in the commission of the offense, (3) the location in which the substance was sold, and/or (4) whether the alleged offender has a prior criminal history.

Additional penalties to an individual convicted of drug possession with intent to sell may include a driver license suspension, additional fines, community service and/or probation. That’s why its so important to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as you can after you are arrested.
