Possession of Illegal Drugs Leads to an Arrest in Lake County.

LAKE COUNTY — Justin Paul Kosinski was arrested on October 2 due to an Osceola County Warrant for possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis.

Kosinski has already been released from the Lake County Jail, and his next court date is set for October 9.

In the State of Florida, possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis is a felony crime. Although Florida laws regarding cannabis have been loosening, the State still aggressively prosecutes these cases.

Punishment for cannabis possession lies heavily on the amount possessed. Since possession of more than 20 grams is usually associated with the intent to sell, it carries a much more significant punishment.

Kosinski’s penalties, if convicted, could include up to five years in prison, strict probation terms, and steep fines of up to $5,000. This conviction would also include a convicted felon status, which means that he would lose valuable civil liberties such as voting in elections, and the loss of his Florida driver’s license.
