Marijuana Possession of 20-Plus Grams in Florida
Twenty grams of marijuana sounds like a small amount. In Florida, though, a conviction for the possession of 20 grams or more of marijuana is a third-degree felony with serious and far-reaching legal penalties, which can include:
- Driver’s license suspension
- Fines of up to $5,000
- Up to five years in prison or supervised probation
- A criminal record

Even a sentence that includes supervised probation carries the possibility of harsh consequences. Community controlled or drug offender probation is more restrictive than other forms of probation and can involve drug testing, drug evaluation, and counseling.
