Escambia, FL. While our client, a government contractor, was traveling on business, his luggage was searched at the airport where marijuana was found.

Diversion Program for Marijuana Charges
If an individual has been found to have a small amount of marijuana on them, they are eligible for a diversion program in Florida. This program is completely voluntary. If it is not completed within 60 days following the preliminary hearing, they will no longer be eligible for it.
The class is 3 hours long and teaches participants the pharmacology of marijuana, as well as marijuana and other substance use disorders. Participants will have the opportunity to examine the effects of their personal use of marijuana.
All fees will be paid for by the defendant. After completing the course, the defendants will be eligible to have their records expunged. Expunging a record will allow the charge to disappear from their record. It will also show that the person was never arrested.
If you would like to have your record expunged, your attorney can assist you with this. They will know the proper forms and steps to take in order to make this happen.
