Drug Cultivation Laws & Penalties in Florida

Florida state laws prohibit the unlawful cultivation or manufacturing of controlled substances. Possession of specific chemicals used in the cultivation process, with intent to manufacture a controlled substance or knowledge of plans to manufacture a controlled substance, violates state laws.

The punishment for drug cultivation is based on the type of drug or controlled substance involved in the offense. For example, cultivation of marijuana is considered a third-degree felony, which is punishable by a prison sentence of up to five years and a maximum fine of $5,000. The manufacturing of other illegal drugs is a second-degree felony, which results in a prison sentence of up to 15 years and a maximum fine of $10,000.

If drug cultivation or manufacturing activities conducted within 1,000 feet of a school, child care facility, community recreational facility, or public park, it is considered a first-degree felony instead of a second-degree felony. A first-degree felony is punishable by a prison sentence of up to 30 years and a maximum fine of $10,000.
