How many 30mg Oxycodone pills it take for a Trafficking charge.?

The lowest trafficking in oxycodone charge is between 4 and 14 grams. So if a pill weighs 30 mg then it would take about 134 of those 30 mg pills to weigh 4 g. About only 14 pills are needed if the pills weigh 300 mg.

This is not to be considered legal advice nor does an attorney-client relationship exist.

A 30mg Oxycodone pill does not actually weigh 30mg. The active ingredient is 30mg, however, the pill contains other ingredients. Under Florida law, the whole pill is weighed. Each pill weighs approximately 0.10004 grams. For a trafficking charge, you must possess at least 4 grams. Therefore, if you have more than 40 pills, you will be charged with trafficking.

This is 100% correct. The common misconception (i.e. by Mr. Trabin who also answered this question) is that only the active ingredient counts for purposes of weight under the criminal statute. This is not true as the criminal statutes punish the entire mixture.
