You’ve got so many questions. We’ll give you answers.


Q: What is considered a cannabis “plant” or a marijuana “plant”?

A: Florida law defines a cannabis or marijuana “plant” as seeding or cuttings with noticeable root formation.  Dead or harvested plants are considered cannabis or marijuana plants under Florida law.  This is important because a dead or harvested plant can propel a possession or cultivation charge into a drug trafficking charge based on the number of plants located during an investigation.
