Your Ocala Attorney for Charges Related to Grow Houses
Marijuana plants are currently illegal in the State of Florida. When the police find a grow house, they will be looking for someone to charge with many felonies including Possession of Cannabis With intent to Sell or Distribute, Possession of Over 20 grams of Cannabis, Cultivation of Cannabis, and Trafficking in Cannabis (300 or more plants, at any stage of growth). Trafficking is the most serious of these charges, being a first-degree felony carrying a minimum mandatory 3-year prison term. Tania Alavi and Andrew Pozzuto of The AP Law Group have over 55 years of combined criminal defense experience. We can assist you in a criminal drug charge related to grow houses in the state of Florida.
PROVING POSSESSION IN A GROW HOUSE CASE
When the police find multiple people inside a grow house, there is a problem of constructive possession. The police will need to show a higher burden of proof. The home occupant must be tied to the illegal activity. Police can search for the occupant who has the keys to the home, or search for mail that contains the occupant’s name. The state may try to prove that the people caught inside the home on the search warrant had knowledge of the marijuana plants. Police also must prove who had dominion and control over the plants. Possession of less than 25 plants is a felony and you can go to jail for up to 5 years.
