Possession of more then 20 grams of marijuana constitutes a 3rd degree felony in the State of Florida.
A 3rd degree felony is punsihable by up to 5 years in State prison.
DRIVER'S LICENSE SUSPENSION
If you are adjudicated guilty of possession of marijuana, misdemeanor or felony, in the State of Florida, the DMV will suspend your Driver's License for 2 years. Ironically, this penalty is much more sever then the penalty for 1st and some 2nd time DUI offenders.
A typical amount purchased on the street is 1 ounce or 'zip.' One ounce of marijuana is the equivalent of 28 grams. For reference, an 1/8 ounce bag equals approximately 3.5 grams.
DO THE POLICE WEIGH MARIJUANA?
Yes. Typically, the arresting officer will weigh any seized marijuana with a cheap, uncalibrated scale similar to the type readily available at your local head shop. However, if weight is an element the government must prove at trial then the marijuana must be weighed at a lab by a calibrated triple-beam. An expert lab analyst must testify to the weight in court.
DOES THE WEIGHT OF THE MARIJUANA CHANGE?
Yes. Marijuana, especially quality product, typically conatins a high water content which tends to evaporate over time. This factor may or may not be helpful to your case. If weight is an issue in your case, the delay between the intial impound of the marijuana and the time prior to its offical weighing by the lab technician may give the water time to evaporate. This will reduce the official weight of the marijuana and possibly change the outcome of your case.
