One of the most common drug crimes is that of illegal possession. As it is so commonly charged, some people make the assumption that it's a minor offense – this is a mistake. The truth is that criminal charges relating to possession can be quite serious and depending on the amount and the type of drug, can lead to severe penalties. For example, in Florida, it is considered to be a felony offense to have 25 or more marijuana plants in your possession; if convicted, this crime could carry a penalty of over 15 years, as well as a $10,000 fine. It is also important to consider that depending on the amount allegedly found to be in your possession, it could be considered prima facie evidence of intent to sell.
