Daytona Beach marijuana trafficking and federal cannabis trafficking penalties can be harsh. Even though marijuana has been legalized in numerous states crimes involving cannabis are still punished very strictly in Daytona Beach. This is especially true in crimes involving large-scale marijuana trafficking organizations or interstate marijuana distribution. Under federal law, a first offense for cannabis trafficking more than 1,000 kilograms (approximately 2,200 pounds) of marijuana carries a mandatory minimum of 10 years and a maximum penalty of life in prison. The penalties become even higher if someone suffers death or serious injury in the course of the marijuana trafficking.
Trafficking in smaller quantities still carries harsh penalties. A first offense for distributing less than 50 kilograms (approximately 110 pounds) of marijuana is punishable by up to five years in federal prison. While the federal government generally prosecutes drug crimes involving interstate distribution, the possession and sale of marijuana can also be punishable under state law in Florida.

Florida is not as harsh as the federal government but still has serious penalties for marijuana possession, distribution and trafficking. For example, the sale of 2,000 to 10,000 pounds of marijuana in Florida is punishable by between 7 and 30 years in state prison. Florida residents should not make the mistake of assuming that only large-scale drug traffickers will be punished. The sale or possession of anything greater than 20 grams of marijuana is a state felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison.
