Possession of a Controlled Substance
If you have been charged with the possession of an illicit drug, chances are that it is formally titled possession of a controlled substance or possession of a controlled dangerous substance. The crime you stand accused of committing may either be classified as a felony or a misdemeanor depending on the type and amount of the illicit your drug you are arrested with and your prior criminal history. The status of your crime is, in part, determined by the schedules established by the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). The CSA created five categories or schedules that divided drugs into groups based on their recognized medical uses and their potential for abuse and dependence.
What Does Possession Mean?
The state of Florida does not equate the ownership of an illicit drug with the possession of an illegal drug. This means that you do not have to be in physical possession of the drug for Florida to consider you as having control of the drug. Florida defines possession in two ways: actual possession and constructive possession. Actual possession is when the drug is in the physical custody of a defendant, such as in a pocket. Constructive possession is when the accused is not physically touching the drug, but the accused does know where the drug is located and has the ability to physically control it such as a glove compartment in a car.
