Trafficking in Cannabis - Florida


Section 893.135 Florida Statutes governs trafficking in Marijuana, cannabis.  A person who is in possession of more than 25 pounts of cannabis, or more than 300 plants into the state, commits a felony.  The minimum term of imprisonment from 25 pounds to 2,000 pounds of cannabis is 3 years including a fine of $25,000.00.  The same is true for persons in possession of more than 300 but less than 2,000 plants.

The mandatory minimum term of imprisonment rises to 7 years and a fine of $50,000 for marijuana weighing from 2,000 to 10,000 pounds.  Again, the same is true as a mandatory minimum for 2,000 plants to 10,000 plants.  Over 10,000 pounds or plants, the fine quadruples to $200,000 and the minimum term of imprisonment rises to 15 years.

Plants must be considered to have root formation, and root hairs to be considered under the terms of this statute.  Callous tissue on the stalk of a marijuana plant is not readily observable evidence of root formation, but viability or sex of the plant is not relevant for the purposes of the statute.

Marijuana Traffiking in excess of 25 pounds or 300 plants is a First Degree felony.

  1. I like that you make sure to mention respecting each and every person who comes in. People are clearly having a rough time, and may have been for a while when they need a bail bonds service. It's good to help them through more than just the financial aspect. It seems like you have a real professional business set up here, nice work!bail-2-go

The Ethics of Offhand Comments and Belief

Phil Robertson (Duck Dynasty):
GQ Article: When asked to define sin that is blurring what is right and wrong:  "Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there."
Phil Robertson rose to some level of fame through his appearance on the A&E show Duck Dynasty.  By the level of Duck Dynasty merchandise and apparel that is present in gas stations, truck stops, and Walmart in the south, it is apparent that the crew of Duck Dynasty have become leaders in a movement that I can only classify as "redneck."

In an GQ magazine interview, Robertson made statements that expressed a negative opinion of homosexuality and homosexuals rooted in his Christian religious belief.  He also made statements that were dismissive of the presence of racism in the Southern states.  A&E suspended Robertson for those comments but has recently been allowed to return to Duck Dynasty to continue his career in reality television.

Repair Vehicle with Bullet Damage in Florida

Under Florida Statute 316.065, it is a misdemeanor of the first degree to repair a vehicle with bullet damage and not reporting it to the office of the county sheriff, or the nearest office or station of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Any person in charge of the garage or repair shop must make the report giving the year, license number, make, model, and color of the vehicle and the name and address of the owner in possession of the vehicle.  This compels the idea that even if an employee notices a bullet hole and does the repair without making a report, the person "in charge" may be the one going to jail.

I won't even bother ending this one with a pitch for anyone to call me about committing this particular crime, but if you want to tell me an interesting story, call me at 904-383-7448.
