Sarasota & Tampa Medical Marijuana Lawyers
Florida Drug Crime Attorneys
Medical marijuana has been recognized by Florida courts and case law, but not by Florida legislature. That is to say, state laws do not allow for the use of marijuana for medical purposes, leaving many people in fear of being arrested or worse. Florida is one of the strictest states in regards to drug crimes and drug legislation. If you are found guilty of marijuana possession of less than one ounce, your punishment may include a fine of up to $1,000 and a prison sentence of up to 1 year. Not to mention the affect this will have on your reputation and your future ability to find work, obtain certain loans, and more.

Marijuana, cannabis and hashish have been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. And although the psychoactive effects are well known, the soothing qualities of marijuana have helped many cancer and AIDS patients find relief. Today, marijuana treatment is used for a chronic loss of appetite as found in wasting syndromes associated with chemotherapy and AIDS. Less commonly, it is used for alcoholism and other drug addictions as well as for the prevention of migraine headaches.
