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.
