You may be aware that MDMA is a drug increasing in popularity. Also known as Molly or Ecstasy, MDMA (methylenedioxymethamphetamine) is a hallucinogenic drug that gives a euphoric high. This drug is used recreationally by individuals across many demographics and comes in many forms. When it is in the form of a pressed tablet it is considered ecstasy, but when it is in powder form and placed into a capsule, it is considered Molly. No matter the form of the drug you’re familiar with, you should know that being in possession of MDMA in Orlando is a felony.
If you’re caught in possession of Molly or Ecstasy, don’t waste any time in acquiring legal representation. The Orlando drug crime lawyers at The Umansky Law Firm have experience defending against possession charges for various drugs and can help settle your legal issues on the most favorable terms.
According to Florida § 893.13(c), possession of Ecstasy (Molly/MDMA) is a third-degree felony in Florida. This means that you are accused of possessing 10 grams of the drug or less. Even a microscopic trace of the drug is considered possession.
If you are found to be in possession of more than 10 grams of the drug, you will be facing more serious charges, such as possession with intent to distribute or even trafficking. These charges carry severe penalties that drastically outweigh those of simple possession.
The penalties you’ll face for possession of 10 grams or less of MDMA include:
Based on Florida drug sentencing guidelines and the amount of MDMA you were caught in possession of, you may face trafficking charges and a mandatory minimum of three years in prison.
