Georgia Drug Laws
Dealing with a drug possession charge is a serious matter in Georgia. If convicted of possessing or distributing controlled substances, you would face jail time, probation, fines, and a suspended driver’s license (even if you were not driving at the time of arrest). With so much at stake, you can’t afford not to have the best legal team on your side.
Controlled substances are placed into different categories. These include both prescription and non-prescription (illegal) drugs. The schedule of the drug and number of prior offenses on your record are taken into consideration when determining the penalties for the crime. You could face enhanced consequences if you are in possession of a controlled substance by a school or playground. Additionally, penalties are enhanced if you have enough drugs to be arrested for intent to distribute or trafficking.
