Drug Crime Defense in Panama City Beach
The Morris Law Firm provides strong defense representation for adults and minors arrested for drug crimes in Panama City or on Panama City Beach, ranging from misdemeanor offenses, such as possession of marijuana or drug paraphernalia, to felony charges, including sale and distribution. In all matters, we are committed to achieving the best possible outcome for our client, understanding that a drug conviction can have a negative and lasting impact on a person’s life.
Florida Drug Charges
Criminal charges involving drug-related offenses—such as possession, sale, cultivation, and trafficking or distribution—are among the most common in Florida state courts. This means district attorneys are serious about prosecuting alleged drug offenders, but it also means the state is open to alternative sentencing options in some cases, recognizing that mandatory jail time and probation rarely address the fundamental problem of addiction.
As a former prosecutor, attorney Dana Morris understands how to work with the state whenever possible to obtain the best results for his clients. If you face any of the following charges, he can help:
- Possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana (weed, cannabis)
- Possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana
- Possession of a controlled substance (cocaine, ecstasy, methamphetamine, amphetamine, molly, prescription drugs, etc.)
- Possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, manufacture, deliver or distribute
- Possession of a controlled substance without a prescription
- Possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of narcotic equipment
- Distribution and sale
- Drug Trafficking
- Intent to distribute
If you have been arrested while visiting Panama City on a drug-related charge, contact our office; we have extensive experience representing people (especially college students) from out of state. We also represent minors charged with possession, guiding families through the Florida juvenile justice system and ensuring that minors’ rights and interests are protected.
The Right Representation for the Circumstances
After we review all the facts and evidence in your case, we will determine our best course of action depending on your best interests. For example, if you face charges for marijuana possession with intent to distribute, we may negotiate with the prosecution to eliminate the distribution offense, thus reducing the charge to a simple misdemeanor possession.
In other circumstances, arrest procedure violations (such as improper searches and seizures) may result in an outright dismissal of all charges if we take the case to trial. We have significant trial experience, so we’ll never hesitate to go to court if it’s in our client’s best interest.
