Palatka Misdemeanor Marijuana Possession Attorney

Possession under 20 grams of marijuana in Palatka is a first degree misdemeanor. This might sound like good news since nearly all other drug possession cases in Florida are felonies but a Palatka misdemeanor can have serious penalties. The federal government still classifies marijuana as a schedule 1 substance.  Schedule 1 substances by definition of the federal government have the highest potential for addiction or abuse and have no known medical use. This classification might not be accurate but if you get caught with marijuana, the federal and state government’s war on drugs will be waged against you. For a Putnam County marijuana case you also have to look at Florida’s position on marijuana. Despite making possession under 20 grams a misdemeanor Florida has not legalized marijuana yet. Florida has laws in place to suspend your license for two years if adjudicated guilty for a drug offense including misdemeanor possession of marijuana. This can even happen if you are walking down the street with marijuana in your pocket and not driving. For comparison the license suspension for a first DUI case is 6-12 months. When you combine the federal and state sanctions for a Palatka possession of marijuana case your ability to drive, go to school with federal financial aid, and receive housing assistance all depend on the result of your case. That is for a misdemeanor Putnam County possession of marijuana under 20 grams case. A withhold of adjudication will save you from some of the state sanctions but not the federal restrictions on student loans and housing assistance. If you are not a United States citizen being caught once with over 30 grams of marijuana or twice regardless of the amount can classify you as an aggravated felon. As an aggravated felon you would be subject to deportation. A Palatka felony marijuana possession over 20 grams can disenfranchise you (eliminate your right to vote) and right to possess a firearm.
