Why can individuals be charged with drug dealing in Florida when the drugs were only for personal consumption?

Drug trafficking laws in Florida are based solely on the amount of the drugs possessed by a person. Depending on the type of drug, if a person possesses a certain amount of it, the law calls that trafficking in drugs, even if the person wasn’t selling any drugs. Additionally, a person could be charged with possession with intent to sell drugs depending on the way drugs are possessed and packaged, regardless of whether or not they were actually selling any drugs.
