Drug Distribution Laws & Penalties

In order to prove the drug crime of selling drugs, a prosecutor must demonstrate that the defendant “knowingly” participated in drug trafficking or possession with intent to sell. For drug distribution activities prosecuted as possession with an intent to sell, it is considered a third-degree felony that is punishable by a maximum prison sentence of five years and fines of up to $10,000.

In Florida, enhanced sentencing is given for those who have prior felony convictions. The state law refers to these defendants as “career criminals” and “habitual felony offenders.”
