Like most states, Florida takes drug crimes very seriously and has enacted laws with severe penalties for those convicted of these offenses. Both the federal government and the State of Florida have published lists of what are classified as controlled substances. These include various types of street drugs such as cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine, as well as prescription drugs.

Drug Crimes in Florida

Federal drug policy was enacted under the Controlled Substances Act in 1970. This Act lists drugs according to five schedules, based on how dangerous and addictive the drug is purported to be. Florida’s list of controlled substances also contains five similar schedules. Schedule I drugs – like mescaline, heroin, and ecstasy – are those with the highest potential for abuse. Prescription drugs such as opioids are also considered controlled substances that can lead to drug charges as well.

Examples of drug crimes involving these substances include:

Drug crime convictions can lead to heavy fines and jail or prison sentences. First-time offenders may be able to avoid a conviction through a diversionary program depending on the circumstances of the case.
