Citizens of Florida have been protesting for legalizing marijuana for some time now. In Florida, no specific laws are created to restrict the cultivation of cannabis. Here, you should strictly refrain from growing marijuana. If caught, a felony charge of criminal possession applies to you.
On growing about 25 or lesser marijuana plants, you’re charged with over five years of imprisonment. Further, you are also subject to paying a penalty fee of about $5000, and cultivating more plants than 25 can further put you into enhanced trouble.
In brief, cultivating about 25 to 300 cannabis plants can lead to a maximum prison sentence of about three 15 years. You will further need to pay $10000 as a fine.
Cultivating more than 300 cannabis plants and up to 2000 plants can lead to a penalty of 3 to 15 years. You will have to, moreover, pay a fine of $25000. Lastly, cultivating 2000 to 10000 cannabis plants comes with a felony charge of 7 to 30 years. You will also have to pay a fine of up to $50000.
Thus, cannabis is prohibited in Florida in all possible forms. Citizens possessing cannabis or cultivating it may face severe felony charges.
