Is possession of drugs a felony offense?

Return to FAQ Videos


When it comes to whether or not possession of drugs is a felony or a misdemeanor, it depends on what type of drug it is. Typically, in Florida, marijuana or cannabis is a misdemeanor, assuming it’s for simple possession and not for selling or intent to distribute. When it comes to cocaine, heroin, other types of prescription drugs, those in Florida are treated as a felony.
