Tampa Drug Trafficking Defense Lawyer

If you or a loved one has been charged with a drug crime, call Joe Caimano and start building a strong protection today. Our law firm is backed by years of experience with drug trafficking cases with many resulting in dismissals or reduced charges and/or sentences.

Drug trafficking is an international black market consisting of the cultivation, distribution, manufacture or sale of illegal controlled substances. Drug trafficking operate similarly to other underground markets.

Some explicit drugs that are included in drug trafficking may include, but are not limited to:

  • Cannabis
  • Anabolic steroids
  • Alcohol
  • Heroin or Morphine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Counterfeit medicine
  • Tobacco
  • Temazepam
  • Opium
  • Cocaine
  • Amphetamine
  • MDMA (Ecstasy)
  • LSD
  • Phencyclidine (PCP or Angel Dust)
  • Peyote (Mescaline)
Florida Drug Trafficking Penalties Imprisonment Fine Amount
Trafficking in Cannabis
25 to 200 pounds / 300 to 2000 plants 3 Years $25,000
2,000 to 10,000 pounds / plants 7 Years $50,000
Greater than 10,000 pounds / plants 15 years $200,000
Trafficking in Cocaine
28 to 200 grams 3 Years $50,000
200 to 400 grams 7 Years $100,000
400 grams to 150 kilograms 15 Years $250,000
Trafficking in Narcotics (Heroin / Morphine)
4 to 14 grams 3 years $50,000
14 to 28 grams 7 years $100,000
28 grams to 30 kilograms 15 years $250,000

Generally, the more dangerous the drug and the larger quantity involved, the more severe the penalty will be. For example, a person caught selling at least five hundred (500) grams, but less than five (5) kilograms of cocaine will spend a minimum of five (5) years in prison and receive a fine of up to $2 million for a first offense.

Penalties may double with the second offense to up to ten (10) years in prison and up to $4 million in fines. When elevated quantities of drugs are involved, the punishment of incarceration goes up as well as the fines. You may spend up to twenty (20) years in penitentiary and be likely to spend up to $8 million in fines. Penalties are much more severe if an “enterprise” is involved or if fatality or an injury is involved with the arrest.

Due to the intense consequences of these charges and the harsh penalties they carry, it is critical to contact a criminal defense attorney, such as Joe Caimano as soon as possible after a charge.
